On the icy shores of Woodbine Beach, the 2024 Winter Stations in Toronto are now open

Now in its tenth iteration, Winter Stations opened to the public this week in Toronto on the icy shores of Woodbine Beach and Queen Street. There, architecture students from the University of Waterloo School of Architecture, Toronto Metropolitan University, and the University of Guelph displayed installations alongside works by designers including, Xavier Madden and Katja Banovic, Brander Architects, Adria Maynard and Purvangi Patel, and David Stein.

This year’s theme was Resonance, which asked designers to take inspiration from past installations. “After ten years of consecutively bringing bright and bold art to Toronto’s public realm, the impact of Winter Stations resonates directly with our innate playful nature and we hope to continue this impact for the years to come,” said RAW Design Architect Dakota Wares-Tani.

Below are the winning designs now on view in the Maple City. The artist statements can be found in a prior article AN published that announced the winners. A full list of past winners can be found here.
