Cool Gardens 2019

Storefront Manitoba
Date of Event: 
Thursday, February 28, 2019 - 11:15am to Monday, April 15, 2019 - 6:00pm

Storefront Manitoba and The Forks invite design teams to submit proposals for a temporary, contemporary garden installation to be located at The Forks in Winnipeg. We are asking you to put your skills to work and challenge the concept of garden and cool(ing). We are looking for an intervention that has the power to stop people in their tracks! 

Cool Gardens is a public garden, art and architecture exhibition that offers a shift of sensation for the summer—cooling—as a general theme. The project brings architects, designers, landscape architects, and artists together to celebrate contemporary garden culture and the local landscape. Cool Gardens takes place annually from the beginning of July until the end of September.


SUBMISSION DEADLINE is Monday April 15th, 2019 at 6:00PM CST.

This competition is open internationally and is based in Winnipeg, Manitoba Canada.
