You might not expect an Icelandic taiga to be home to a monolithic architectural achievement, but the Icelandic Institute of Natural History rises majestically out of the harsh environment with austere beauty.

With a double glass facade that takes advantage of the low angles of sunlight that Iceland enjoys for large parts of the year, and a host of other intelligent energy-efficient innovations, the Icelandic Institute of Natural History is a sight to behold.

Implications - The Icelandic Institute of Natural History contains many different features, some of which include 50 offices for scientists and a library which contains a specimen. The building is a part of a larger plan for the Urridaholt development.
