Winter Stations is a series of outdoor art installation that bring a little color and whimsy to this dreariest of seasons. One of the standout designs comes from Department of Architectural Science Ryerson students Diana Koncan and Lily Jeon. Titled Snowcone, it joins the rest of the Winter Stations as a bold sculpture that looks like a snow-covered pinecone, hence its name.

The Winter Stations take over four lifeguard stands across Kew Beach in Toronto, Canada. By doing so, they bring new purpose to the lone structures, which continue to stand guard even in the cold. The Winter Stations also turn the beach in an outdoor gallery that helps people get through the worse of the season and outside to enjoy some fresh air.
