Team Penguins

Warming huddle

When it comes to keeping warm in the depths of winter, this species has found an inspiring solution. Team Penguin pays tribute to the ingenuity of penguins and their choreography to help keep each other warm. In a rotating huddle, humans are invited to explore various paths to create collective heat … just like penguins.

Keeping Warm, Like Penguins

To stay warm, penguins group together and move in a tight circular motiona huddle. To help those located at the outskirts of the circle benefit from the heat, a perpetual rotation takes place inside the group, allowing each member to have a turn in the center. With its field of turnstiles, Team Penguin offers humans the chance to reproduce this infinite dance and brave the cold in a new way, together.
