South Bronx Igloo Project

Yes, you read the title of this post properly.  There was an igloo on the rooftop of a South Bronx apartment building... made entirely out of cardboard boxes, household paint, and duct and packing tape. Only in the Bronx kids, only in the Bronx.

A BoogieDowner reader sent us a tip about the two artists, John Mascaro and Leo Morand, who developed the Igloo Project.  They have established a collective, MUT Architecture, working between the South Bronx and Paris.  

For more information (as well as great photos) on Mascaro and Morand's work, click here and here.  

I will let the pictures below speak for themselves.
