Canoes and the cold

This Friday we’re highlighting compelling work in the built environment, from Arup and beyond.

1. Building Design + Construction Magazine profiles the winning design for the new Canadian Canoe Museum in which a two-acre rooftop garden lends the building a camouflage effect.

2. ArchDaily explores ice structures, spotlighting ice hotels, snow shows, and icy sculptures from around the world.

3. Dezeen highlights Desai Chia Architecture’s glass and steel weekend retreat — Guest House — constructed entirely out of prefabricated materials.

4. designboom showcases photographer Laird Kay’s “Lego city,” stylized skyscrapers built out of Legos composed to critique what she sees as the transient, expressionless nature of modern cities.

5. Architect Magazine features the University of Chicago Laboratory School’s Gordon Parks Arts Hall, a 539,000ft2 anchor building that brings Gothic architectural elements into a 21st century aesthetic.
