A TEMPLE OF SCENIC LIFE FOR THESPIANS THEATRE-FOLKS AND TRAVELLERS
The Beacon is a temple of scenic life dedicated to the mythical blazing spirit of the Exchange District, and the evanescent memories and dreams evoked by transient living.
An urban infill project in the form of a hotel is proposed as a dwelling typology which can stitch together the dynamic and tourist-oriented scenarios relevant to the Winnipeg exchange district and the Centennial Centre Complex. The hotel has 60 rooms in total and they can be brought to life by up to 120 thespians, theatre folks, and travellers who will be able to explore the mythic potentialities of the of the city. Amenities which celebrate the acts and arts of bathing are embedded into the hotel allowing the community surrounding the hotel to have a place of repose amidst the bustle of the urban realm.
