Would You Eat Dinner Outside on a Frozen River?

Here’s an original restaurant concept: a pop-up located on a frozen river in Winnipeg, where the ice freezes two feet thick in the wintertime. Would you dare eat a hot meal on the ice?

I have to confess that this pop-up structure by British architects OS31 looks beautiful. It is supposed to evoke “drifts of snow” and it is created out of very light materials. This doesn’t leave much insulation to shield diners from the cold, however. They’ll need to bundle up well against the chill, which can drop to -37°C.
