Winnipeggers love a bargain - and it doesn't get much thriftier than a Frank Gehry structure for $20K. As part of the third annual competition for River Trail warming huts, Gehry has contributed an elegant design of Douglas fir and semi-translucent ice blocks. The participation of the Toronto-born, L.A-based architect, best known for the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, confirms the competition's rapidly rising international profile.


Nice patterns of snow on ice. Maybe squirrels?
