IGLOO

Man creates his environs from available nearby materials. Unlike the clay hut, or the igloo made of ice carved into blocks, in a post-industrial society, the materials which have become available are now sourced from the surplus produced by consumptions own waste.

This is a suggestion for a temporary structure, a mirage, to which there is no entry.
