Winnipeg’s Warming Huts are intriguing lessons in the design and construction of pop-up architecture – between art and urbanism. Peter presents several Huts as case-studies of the process of turning ideas (winners of an international design competition) into built form. Often skipping between digital and analogue realizations in a very tight time frame, some Huts have been very successful – and some less so. In 2020 the project was awarded a National Urban Design Award of Excellence for revitalizing urban spaces in a most inhospitable time of year; the talk will also review the civic impact of the Huts as microscale urbanism.
At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to:
Identify several fabrication techniques and their application in constructing temporary creative projects;
Describe the design and rapid-construction process of specific small architectural works;
Explain processes and resources useful in initiating and sustaining an international competition for design of public art;
Discuss the impacts of pop-up art and architecture on urban space and public behavior.
