    3. The Barin ski Resort, Iran

      Inspired by the resilient Igloos, the architects of this strange resort wished to find a harmony between nature and architecture in the design. Almost camouflaging with the white ruggedness of the surroundings, the Barin ski resort is made innovatively with the walls of the rooms giving a mirage of being enveloped in snow from top to bottom. Not to mention, the views of the surroundings only make the experience more magical.
