Students and early-career professionals across the GTA proposed new temporary installations for the Downsview Wind Rose as part of the XOXO emerging designer competition.

Teams entered the competition from a wide range of ages and creative fields, including graphic, urban, and industrial design, architecture, engineering, landscape architecture, fine arts, and more.


The jury was impressed by the creativity, thoughtfulness, and passion shown by all teams who submitted to the competition. We are delighted to share and celebrate all the proposals here, along with the teams’ statements of design intent and some selected comments from the jury.
