Bozeman Ice Tower -[RE]SENSITIZE through ALWAYS CHANGING

UIAA Design Competition, 2012, Bozeman, Montana, USA

Design Competition, 2012 – 2nd Place Winner

Always changing, a common metaphor used to describe outdoors environment circumstances. The design concept evokes the significance of place and re-sensitizes people with phenomenological experience of interaction with environment. Based on research, we believe that the most beneficial intervention and investment for the community of Bozeman is a multipurpose recreational civic spaces (to be built in phases) that interjects the mountaineering subculture experience and conversation ethics into the agriculture dominated Gallatin Valley Fair Grounds. A civic platform that will be active year around. (collaboration with J.S. and J.W)
