Glaciers, snow and perpetual ice have always fascinated human beings; this is reflected in the exceptional architecture of frigid regions. The task of building in the coldest parts of the world represents both a bare necessity and a special challenge. This book presents the most innovative projects that illustrate the success of contemporary architects in mastering the challenges of building in extremely cold zones. We present the work of architects working in this field, graphically accompanied by numerous photographs and plans, providing a fascinating glimpse into the world of ice architecture.
