Pudlo has made many works of different types of habitations, often focusing on the igloo form and its possibilities for reconstruction. In this drawing, Pudlo uses the basic igloo as a springboard for working out a rendition of a multi-part, multi-levelled architectural fantasy. This design is inspired by both the idea of the double igloo - two igloos joined by a single porch - and the modern high-rise buildings of the South.
