Fire is central to the winter experience. The hearth, a symbol for this time of celebration and community, can represent an architectural antidote to the impending dark and cold winter months. It is around fire and hearth that friends and families—even whole communities—gather to cook, share stories, and bond in its warmth and glow.

Walk by the District Architecture Center this holiday season to be warmed by the light of the Wonderland storefront display!

Designed by: Cooper Jones and Maureen McGee, Wonderland 2015 competition winners
