Eight “Winter Stations” have been installed along Toronto’s beachfront, injecting new life into the shoreline during the Canadian city’s winter months. Completed as a result of the annual Winter Stations design competition, the eight projects responded to this year’s theme of “Catalyst,” which sought installations that “open up the waterfront landscape and reinvent the space for visitors” while considering how materials may be repurposed or reused for future iterations.

Five professional and three student designs were constructed this year along Kew, Scarborough and Balmy Beaches in the heart of Toronto’s Beach community. Record numbers of Torontonians attended the unveiling ceremony and family day this year.
