A glacier in the middle of the big city? Something like this is only available in Sweden - in Gothenburg: here in the trendy district of Kvilbäcka, “Glasiaren”, a six-storey building with a bluish shimmer, was created. So that this "glacier" - because nothing else means glacial - does not heat up, the owners opted for the dimmable ECONTROL sun protection glass.
