Sitting on the Docks of Broadway!

2015 Competition Winner
Sitting on the Docks of Broadway! brings the cottage to Winnipeg for the summer of 2015. The citizens of Winnipeg work too hard and deserve a dock on which to fish, drink beer and suntan! Ok! We can’t bring the fish and the beer might not be allowed, but they can suntan! And they can relax, socialize, perform, eat vendor dogs and enjoy all too short summer months. Set within a field of wheat-like grass, two wooden docks sit beneath the shade of the natural umbrellas which are the Elms that march along Broadway. Sitting invitingly atop the docks are whimsical interpretations of that ubiquitous piece of cottage furniture- the Adriondack chair. These bright coloured seats call out for people to come and relax in Winnipeg’s newest public space.
