Ice sheds

A marvellous piece by Geoff Manaugh in Metropolismag looks at an annual architecture experiment on the frozen Medicine Lake of Minne­apolis called Art Shanty Projects. It includes 20 sheds/cabins taking their inspiration from local ice-fishing shed architecture. Pictures courtesy Art Shanty Projects. Geoff is the clever chap behind the marvellous BldgBlog which is full of interesting posts on the themes of Architectural Conjecture, Urban Speculation, and Landscape Futures. It will soon be available in book format too. Well worth a browse. [update - Geoff Manaugh is now the Senior Editor at the equally marvellous Dwell magazine. Thanks to Justin at materialicio.us for getting in touch]
