Warming Huts an Art and Architecture Competition on Ice


Every winter uniquely designed warming huts appear on the Red River Mutual Trail. These structures are chosen in a contest held in the summer. Warming Huts is an open competition, endorsed by the Manitoba Association of Architects. Proposals for the competition are submitted online and a blind jury selects designs that best “push the envelope of design, craft and art.”

Contest Winners

Each year, the winning submissions are described in detail so visitors can look forward to the new arrivals.
