Designed by James Corner Field Operations, ICEBERGS opened at the National Building Museum as part of the annual Summer Block Party series. ICEBERGS was designed by landscape architects and built from reusable construction materials, such as scaffolding and polycarbonate paneling. The 20′ high “water line” allows panoramic views from high above the ocean surface and down below among the towering bergs.
We explored a fantastical glacial sea, slid down an ice chute, viewed the ICEBERGS from under sea level to 56′ above all while learning how design can transform a space and lives.
