Polaria
Polaria, a arctic experience center in my home town Troms°.
About this creation
This is the third building from my home town that I have tried recreating in LEGO. The first was a strange roof on our library. After that I tried a church and it has similar shapes as this building.

The real building Polaria is a arctic experience center. It is in my home town Troms°, that also is known for being the gateway to the arctic seas. In old times all ships going to or from the arctic passed by this town and used it as a refueling station and for getting new supplies.

Since the town is known as an arctic town the design of this building should resemble slabs of ice fallen together. Like the shape when the polar ice is crushing into itself and one slab of ice enters on top of another.

The LEGO creation does not have an interior. I built it in too small scale for that to be possible. The scale of the building is just taken on free hand by looking on photos. I have not measured anything so it is a bit smaller scale compared to the size of a minifigure than the real building is compared to the size of an human.

Each slab is built as its own section and just rest on top of the next one with the force of gravitation. There is a few bricks inside that keep it from sliding but nothing that locked them together.

The LEGO creation was built in Januar 2006 and it was on display in the real Polaria museum in the summer 2006. But was in 2007 taken apart and most of the parts was used in the latest version of the curch "Ishavskatadralen".

This is excellent. I doubt that I could have figured out how to build it even if I had the right pieces! I just looked at the other creation that you built with the long name, and you are awesome! If only I could build this good.
