From over 100 entries this year, jury members selected designs that best “push the envelope of design, craft and art.” Three huts were chosen from the open submission process, one from a separate University of Manitoba competition and one is being designed by award-winning architect Atelier Big City from Montreal.

Presenters Include: Atelier Big City (Big City); Aamodt Plumb Architects (Smokehouse); Group Han Associates (Woolhaus); Liz Wreford-Taylor, Colin Grover and Marcelle Lucier (Hygge House); Stantec (Sonus Loci); Luca Roncoroni (Ice Sculptor); and the University of Manitoba Environmental Design Studio (Weave Wave).
