Snowcone for the Winter Stations Competition on The Beach

Experimental Project

Snowcone was exhibited during the inaugural Winter Stations Competition on The Beach.

Snowcone’s playful architectural design mimics the protective organic form of a pinecone and borrows the simple, effective technology of a traditional igloo. In warm, sunny weather, Snowcone’s translucent panels filter colourful rays of light; in cold, snowy conditions, the insulated structure functions as a hub in which visitors can huddle for warmth.
