Sputnik Architecture has teamed up with artists before for ice exhibits, helping to create Winnipeg's annual Warming Huts event at that city's waterfront known as the Forks. In 2012 Sputnik was Invited to venture east to North Bay, Ontario to take part in their biennial festival of contemporary and community engaged art on frozen lake Nipissing. Our approach was simple, put the budget toward readily accessible building materials, and go to work. the result is a windbreak, angled to look like a stick coming out of the ice to anyone approaching from the shore, only to find as they walk closer that it has a coffee bar and a bench for comfort. The space between the slats look like individual panoramas of the horizon and distant ice huts.
