"Windbreak, Sanctuary, Destination, Folly and Celebration...A functional artistic expression connecting community and visitors, Proudly Iconic both Nationally and locally.

A simple form contrasting highly in both shape and colour with its immediate surroundings. The warming puck draws attention and generates curiosity from afar. Upon closer inspection, it presents itself as an assemblage created from a palette of meaningful materials and immediately recognizable forms. Entering this structure reveals a pleasantly spacious enclosure within which smaller warning shelters provide respite from the wind and cold. Two design modules build four individual quadrats easily and economically. These pieces once maneuvered into position are fastened together with a pair of entry vestibule frames and laced to a translucent roof membrane.
