The Ice House is an ephemeral and temporary project designed by Alexander Brodsky. The pavilion was another project that Brodsky underwent in the Klyazma Reservoir near Moscow. Ice House was a bar which was literally set up on the frozen lake. Constructed in the winter of 2003, the building was made from ice cubes formed by pouring water onto a metal mesh which was encased in a wooden structural frame. The pavilion was then lit from the interior, which created a diffuse, ambient glow.

As with many of Brodsky's projects, the Ice House had a fleeting and temporal element to it. Once spring came, the ice cubes melted into the lake and the structure was removed.
