John Patkau’s Winnipeg Skating Shelters are currently on display in the courtyard at the Victoria & Albert Museum, London (July 15- November 12, 2017). The free exhibition, Plywood: Material of the Modern World, investigates the history of plywood techniques and applications.

The Winnipeg Skating Shelters existed for one season on the iced-over Assiniboine river, Winnipeg, and have been reproduced with great care for the new V&A exhibition.
