shelter design

Vancouver based design firm Patkau Architects creates a functional shelter against harsh winds of winter in long skating trails of Winnipeg.

These delicate structures draw their inspiration from a herd of buffalos standing with their backs to the wind, while swaying gently in the wind to shaking off any excess snow – providing a perfect rest spot for people to cozy up while enjoying the beauty of winter.
