The world’s first and largest hotel made of snow and ice is being built for the 33rd time and will open its doors on December 16.
While Icehotel 32 is melting and reuniting with Torne River, the hotel with its creative director, Luca Roncoroni, has selected the 24 artists who will create the art in this year’s winter hotel.
In November, shortly after the first snowflake falls, the artists will traditionally gather in Jukkasjärvi, 200 kilometers North of the Arctic Circle, to jointly create the 2,870 m2 seasonal hotel consisting of 12 Art Suites, 24 Ice Rooms, and 1 Ceremony Hall.
– Icehotel 33 will be amazing for many reasons! Not only because artists from all over the world will create unique experiences in ice and snow, but also because we were finally able to hold an open international competition again. It has been a challenge to pick only 12 concepts out of so many great ideas, and we want to give a big thank you to every single artist who sent a submission. Now that we have made a selection, we are eager to start planning the details of the next winter hotel and of course welcome the artists in Jukkasjärvi at the end of November! Icehotel 33 will truly be a unique experience! says Luca Roncoroni, Creative Director at Icehotel.
