Gartnerfuglen’s Portable Fishing Shack Has Walls Made of Ice

This past winter we saw all kinds of amazing buildings constructed completely from ice and snow  – and now we can add this frigid, ice-walled fishing shack to the list. Called “Unavailability” and designed in Norway by Gartnerfuglen , the shack is completely portable and can be erected in just 30 seconds by one or two people. It has a timber frame and chicken wire cladding that is filled up with lake water to create ice walls, which provide shelter for a single inhabitant while they fish.
The Norwegian design firm called their project Unavailability because the shack is designed to give a single person some much-needed isolation from the wired world – even if just for a brief sojourn. The tiny structure  can be outfitted with bare essentials and Gartnerfuglen  hopes that climbing plants will creep up the sides of it during the summer months.
This by nature for nature project is just one in a long stream of minuscular buildings  that offer busy people a moment of peace and solitude.
