Build your own igloo in a few easy steps!

The igloo is an iconic structure recognized around the world. At once beautiful and strong, simple yet complex, the architecture of an igloo represents an ingenious use of nature's materials to suit human needs.

An igloo (Inuit language: iglu) or "snow house" is a shelter constructed from blocks of snow, generally in the form of a dome. Although igloos are mainly associated with the Inuit people of Canada's Arctic (as well as being found in Greenland), they are also part of the common Canadian identity. After all — even putting aside the occasional jokes about Canadians living in igloos — many children around the country have at some point tried making their own igloo-like structure in the winter.
