FIbONACCI GOES FOLK | FIbONACCI FOLKLORISÉ GLEN MANNING FOLK ENSEMbLE | THE FESTIVAL TOWER EN_ THE FESTIVAL TOwER consumed only a fraction of the Winnipeg Folk Festival multi-million dollar site redevelopment budget, but a lot rested on getting it right. The Folk Fest celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2013. This outdoor event, which is held in Birds Hill Provincial Park about 30 kilometres north of Winnipeg, attracts over 80,000 people during five days in July, and is now one of the premiere music festivals in North America. To mark the anniversary, the Festival hired HTFC to help design the centerpiece of their ambitious site redevelopment project: the Festival Village and Festival Tower. >FR_LP+ FIbONACCI FOLKLORISÉ L'idée de la tour est née d'un astérisque dans le plan directeur du site, une place pour quelque chose d'intéressant. La disposition du village du festival s'inspire de la spirale de Fibonacci, qui crée un motif similaire à celui d'une fleur de tournesol centré sur la tour. Le concept le plus prometteur impliquait des structures hyperboloïdes, qui s'inséraient à merveille dans cette géométrie tourbillonnante et s'élevaient au-dessus du sol tout en suggérant une espèce d'étreinte... 1 32 LANDSCAPES PAYSAGES THE VILLAGE The Festival Village was an idea derived from the master plan HTFC prepared in 2006, and one of the last steps in the site redevelopment. The Village would provide a focus for the main non-venue activities: food and craft vendors, music store, beer tents, meeting and orientation spaces, first aid, donor recognition, and more. Gathering these functions in one location on the 100-acre (40.5 ha) site improved convenience and clarity for festival-goers, but it also meant changes to a few longstanding traditions. The WFF is one of the oldest music festivals in Canada, and renowned for loyal patrons who return year after year expecting to relive the experience of previous festivals. There have been some minor tweaks over the years, but nothing of this magnitude. It was vital that we protect the essence of the Festival - improving how it works without changing how it feels. The culture of the event drove everything. THE TOWER The tower idea began as an asterisk on the site master plan, a place for something interesting. The Folk Festival project managers wanted "a permanent focal point that anchors the new Festival Village and gives a personality to the festival
