Five teams, each consisting of architects paired with an artist or landscape design firm, have each received $9,000 to design and construct a warming hut. Paul Jordan, chief operating officer at The Forks, expects Winnipeg skaters to find their own ways to generate heat in the huts.

Sputnik Architecture worked with artist Jon Pylypchuk on a hut entitled CARCASS, inspired by decaying barns and made of wood, aluminum and polycarbonate. Architect Richard Kroeker and artist Neil Forrest are created Fir Hut, which uses the aboriginal technique of thatched balsam fir, but also incorporates the decidely non-traditional pop cans.
