Usually at this time of (new) year, the escapist in me hightails it south to sun and sand. As per my resolutions, I’m trying to embrace my wintry reality by imagining myself at this chic shelter atop a frozen confluence in Winnipeg, Canada. More than a roof, RAW:almond is a pop-up restaurant claiming to be the first of its kind (its “kind” being fine dining on ice). Channeling the geography of the site – where the Assiniboine empties into the Red River – British studio OS31 came up with the winning design concept: a X-shaped structure symbolizing the rivers’ crossing, framed in metal, sheathed in snowdrift-like white. RAW opens its frigid doors on January 22; resolution fulfillment has never felt so fashionable.
