below: “S’winter Station” was designed by a team from Ryerson University’s Department of Architectural Science.  The circular openings on the surface panels were made from beach towels, an object more associated with summer than with winter.

    Thanks for taking me to this year’s Winter Stations — 5 years now, since I’ve had that pleasure in person. They look terrific.
