Design Requirements

Measurements of Ice structure: The size of the structure should be no larger than a hemisphere with the diameter of 10 meters. Architectural design should be novel and beautiful, reflecting the charm of snow and ice architecture, reflecting the current trend.

Spatial quality: interior space can enter and be experienced. Specific functions can be arranged according to their own design.

Structure: pay attention to architectural and structural design, pay attention to the rational expression of architectural concept, considering the safety and rationality.

Materials: ice and snow or fiber reinforced ice, (ice composite)

Construction: There is no limit of the construction method of the ice structure, the suggested method for the mold could be an inflatable, rope net, pre-stressed membrane or other structure. On the mold you can spray water, snow and fibers. The basic equipment water, snow and fibers will be provided by the organization. The ice structure has to stand by itself. But the choice of construction method is open to the group.
