Storefront Manitoba is pleased to announce the winners of the Cool Gardens 2021 FAUM Student Competition!

MASKED CONVERSATIONS was submitted by Chukwuebuka Idafum, Kenyo Musa, and Victor Odusanya, Environmental Design Students from the University of Manitoba. Their proposal integrates a series of playful sculpted figures which aim to set the scene where the audience is engaged, the stage comes alive, and the performance commences. It is an obscured conversation between the audience and the cast.

We would also like to congratulate the honorary mentions:
Curtain Call by Jamie Coverini
Reflect by Carlos Rueda, Amanda Reis, Juliana Anderson, Emily Birch, Alex Boss, Madeleine Dafoe, Ralph Daniel Gutierrez, Lisbeth Hildebrand, Ashley Ann Polet, Smile Singh, and Emily Will.

A huge thank you goes out to the Faculty of Architecture, the Student Innovation Enrichment Fund (SIEF), the Endowment Fund, and the jury members who served in the adjudication: Karen Wilson-Baptist and Leanne Muir from the Faculty of Architecture, Melissa McAlister and Meaghan Hunter as Professional External Jurors, Bhavana Bonde, Bianca Dahlman, and Kim Wiese from the Endowment Fund Committee, and Dave Pancoe from the Forks.

Storefront thanks all those who submitted to this year’s competition.
