Rather than use artificial trees, Talmon Biran would re-use large dead trees that did not make it through winter, also reducing the ecological footprint of the project.

The installation would take place on Winnipeg’s frozen Assiniboine Credit Union River Trail, which runs through the snowy citySixteen trees would be placed in a four by four grid pattern, creating a grove appearance from afar, but would also be spaced apart to allow an easy flow of skating traffic throughout. Rather than use artificial trees, Talmon Biran would re-use large dead trees that did not make it through winter, also reducing the ecological footprint of the project.

Talmon Biran also previously designed a project for Winnipeg called Woodpile. In a contest called “Warming Huts- Art + Architecture competition on ice, the pair of designers took first place for their unique shelter that Assiniboine skaters could stop in to warm up, and relax by a fire before skating on.

With the plan of installing the Winter Garden with the new warming huts, the  resulting installation will combine public art, with utility and social gathering.  Talmon Biran has launched a fund raising campaign on IndieGoGo to help realize the project, and you can help!
