The interior of the HEXigloo provides a welcoming, bright atmosphere, for young and not-so-young Bucharest residents to enjoy. The pavilion’s multiple hexagonal windows provide plenty of daylight and resemble cardboard stalactites. The cardboard used for the ephemeral igloo is 6 mm thick, and it took approximately 2200 laser-cut linear meters and two teams of participants to assemble and erect the 3D structure within a span of 80 hours.

Check out the video below to find out exactly how HEXigloo was made!
