“an unfinished abandoned igloo”

This place is on private property. Listing for informational purposes only. Please do not visit without express permission from the land owner. Travelers driving between Anchorage and Fairbanks can still see Igloo City rotting on the side of the road. It was constructed in the 1970's in an igloo shape, to pay homage to the Inuits but it never opened due to building code violations. Since then, it has been used by different owners as a gas station and gift shop. What might have been a convenient spot for a hotel is now a convenient spot for photographers looking to capture its decay.  Kuriositas has a nice collection of Igloo City photos, including the unfinished interior, which is considerably more attractive than its exterior. And, of course, there's a huge pool of photos on Flickr.

Such a shame. Looks like it would have been a very interesting spot had it been completed.
