Instead of creating a single warming hut for skaters along the Assinibione River Trail, we designed „POLAR HEN“, a fearsome creature! A pump with a sprinkler connected to a compressor and a generator. It settles down on the ice, perforates it and begins to pump up the icy riverwater to spray it over an air-filled silicone inflatable, where it instantly freezes. When the ice coat thickens enough, the inflatable is emptied and removed from the inside of the ice igloo. POLAR HEN is now ready to move on and create more igloos!
