The Sunspot…

The Sunspot hangs from the Historic Rail Bridge at The Forks and hovers just a few feet above the frozen river. Coloured water is sprayed over the sphere's structural frame to form a thin shell of ice. This translucent ice shell renders the interior of the dome with a vibrant and warm glow.

A large circular opening at the bottom of the sphere allows skaters to enter the from beneath and experience the transformed sky. The edge of the opening provides a bench to rest on, and the structure itself is a shelter from the wind.
