There’s a series of gorgeous building in Aarhus, Denmark’s second-largest city, that’s called “the Iceberg.”
The angular buildings, which sit on the country’s coastline, look like a giant iceberg jutting out from the land.
Constructed in 2013, the project was designed by the firm JDS / Julien De Smedt Architects.
With its striking jagged angles and white and blue facade, it's obvious why this construction is called 'the Iceberg.'
Together, the buildings are home to 200 apartments, and were intended to help revitalize the formerly industrial area.
The peaks and valleys of the buildings resemble their icy namesake, but also ensure that each apartment has some sort of view of the Aarhus Harbour.
The balconies on the lower floors are blue, and get more and more clear the further up the building they go, mimicking the colours of a real iceberg.
The Iceberg has won some architecture prizes, including ArchDaily's 2015 Building of the Year Award for Housing.
