First Ever Igloo In LA

Our friends at Curbed just reminded us of the latest creation at Silver Lake archi-gallery Materials & Applications: Light Frames, an installation by LA architect Gail Peter Borden. The project consists of two parts: the "igloo"-looking segment, seen above, is what Borden calls an enclosed "chapel," built out of translucent vinyl plastic and perfect for meditation. The second is a hand-assembled dome—its triangulated metal structure completely exposed—resting at the entrance to the gallery's courtyard.  Together they resemble, perhaps, the love child of an Eskimo and Buckminster Fuller. Or at least that's how this strange mind sees it.
