Last day to vote Steam Canoe for Architizer award!

 

Wednesday, March 29, 2017

Give OCAD U’s Steam Canoe the last push to win an Architizer + people’s choice award - voting closes March 30 and the installation, created for the 2016 Beach Winter Stations exhibition, is among the top in the category of Pavilion. Last check, it was in second position! 

Created by Environmental Design professor Mark Tholen and his students, the structure is made of laminated wood panels curved like the prow of a canoe.

Students Curtis Ho, Jungyun Lee, Monifa Onca Charles, Reila Park, Hamid Shahi, Lambert St‐Cyr, Jaewon Kim and Jason Wong worked with Tholen to create and install the temporary shelter. 

Steam Canoe has won many kudos, including the Materialica award in Munich and was installed in the OMI Sculpture Park in Ghent, New York.

Technical details:

The shell of the canoe-inspired structure is composed of panels made of wood laminated by the use of Grip Metal™, a Metal Velcro Fastening System. The Grip Metal is an innovative bonding system with micro hooks allowing bonding mechanically without the use of adhesives. It creates a very strong and light-weighted panel that is cost-effective, easy and very fast to manufacture.
