Competition entry - Organized by : Benchmark - Location: Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada - Year: 2019
The design is an elevated and introverted, circular bench where one can recline and enjoy the sky view. The goal is to provide a desirable experience to hikers using the Trans Canada Trail. A hiker’s spectrum of view is wide and open. We wanted to preserve those attributes and make a place which provides a wide view range but also a place for rest and contemplation. The surface of the bench is reflective and the outside wall is inclined, so in that way the sky will be reflected to the entirety of the surface of the bench. The reflective surface enhances the feeling of elevation.
