Amazing Spaces Snow And Ice Special

In this Christmas Special of Amazing Spaces, airing on Thursday 14 December at 8.00pm on Channel 4, Architect George Clarke and master craftsman Will Hardie travel to Norway, to discover how a country with some of the harshest weather on the planet has become a leader in small space design. Norwegian craftsmanship and determination puts the country at the forefront of global architecture. George travels by husky sled to a tree house in a forest that can withstand nine tonnes of snowfall and gale force winds.

There’s also a visit to an ice hotel – the mother of all igloos, complete with 30 rooms, a bar, and even a snow chapel. The boys meet members of the local Sami community, to see the moveable home that has kept members of their community safe for hundreds of years. There’s a disused oil silo turned into a circular home; a geodesic aluminium dome; and an epic family home in the mountains. And Will meets leading explorer Borge Ousland.
