An igloo might be the last thing you’d expect to see in the summer, but artist Virginia Melnyk successfully brought the wintry icon to life as Summer Igloo, a cradle-to-cradle pavilion at the 2014 Beijing C!HERE Art Crawl. Built with inflatable pool toys, this colorful geodesic dome served as a small and playful intimate space in a large public housing development. After the event, all the inflatable pool toys were donated to charity for local children to enjoy.
