Snow Maze

  • Posted by Peter Glatzer on February 21, 2015 in Cities
  • Leave it to the Swedish design team behind ICEHOTEL to conjure up the idea of packing snow and sculpting ice for a week to carve a playground from the frozen tundra. The icy park includes two slides, a snow lantern, four egg-shaped chairs, ice benches, and an elaborate maze that is now being enjoyed by the lucky children (and adult-children) of Sweden.

    “The inspiration and key elements behind the playground are adventure and exploring,” the designers say on their website. “[We want] the park visitors to feel like they are explorers finding a lost city in the middle of a snow-and-ice jungle. The imaginary play is just as important as the active play.”
