FFLO have won an international competition to design a transparent sauna in Toronto. Their design for the Winter Stations competition has been selected from 368 entries to be built this February.

James Fox, director of FFLO and landscape architecture design tutor at the University of Greenwich, describes the project: “This transparent polycarbonate sauna for three offers a hot steamy experience on the frozen beach for those who dare to try it, and a misty view of sweaty flesh for those who pass by. At night the sauna glows like a deep sea creature –  a beacon on the beach”

The Winter Stations is an annual public art competition that challenges designers worldwide to reimagine Toronto’s lifeguard stations as a basis for winter art. The judging panel included Jane Hutton from Harvard Graduate School of Design who ran a workshop and lectured at Greenwich in 2015.
