Ice Ice Baby

Add this to the long list of renowned buildings whittled from H2O: a group of college students in The Netherlands are set to recreate a 131-foot replica of Antonio Gaudí's Sagrada Familia out of ice that's been fortified with wood fibers. Word is they'll be able to do it in three weeks, a huge feat considering there's so much Gothic detail in its swirling spires that the building won't even be finished until 2026. They'll use molds to recreate (at 1:4 scale) the masterpiece, perhaps using those bonkers 3D renderings of the finished product. [Arch Daily; previously; previously]
