Located in the dramatic Icelandic landscape, this modern igloo consists of a geodesic dome, built in steel and glass, which adapts to the surroundings and integrates ice and snow as a component more. The igloo uses ice walls that isolates, and the glass dome that works as a greenhouse allowing the enjoyment of the views. This makes it a perfect shelter for researchers in extreme conditions.
