OCAD University professor Mark Tholen and a team of students are building an installation for the city’s whimsical Winter Stations exhibition in the east-end Beach neighbourhood. This is the second year lifeguard stations will be transformed into interactive, sculptural shelters for winter beach-goers.
The OCAD U installation, called The Steam Canoe, is made of laminated wood panels that evoke the shape of the prow of a canoe. Solar tubes at the rear of the shelter will convert snow into steam which will flow from the structure while warming the occupants inside.

Ryerson University and Laurentian University are also participating, with another four designs chosen from 378 submissions.
The exhibition opens February 15 and runs through March 20 at the Balmy, Kew and Ashbridge’s Bay beaches.
