Daniel Gray, an engineering student from New Zealand, doesn't shy away from a challenge. While visiting his Canadian girlfriend's family in Edmonton over the winter holidays, he was presented with 500 translucent ice bricks made out of colored water and frozen in milk cartons. Although the challenge was innocent, more of a fun way to "keep him occupied," as his girlfriend's mother, Brigid Burton, put it, Daniel Gray took it to another level all together.

With the help of neighbors and family members, Daniel Gray spent nearly 150 hours building a rainbow igloo. With his engineering background, the resulting structure was visually stimulating, attracting local news teams to cover their efforts. Perhaps Daniel Gray will find a promising igloo career in the great white north.
