Highlights from China’s Massive Snow and Ice Festival

Each year, the northern city of Harbin, China hosts the International Snow Sculpture Art Expo—a spectacular exhibition showcasing the wonders of ice and snow as a building material. Officially opened on 5 January, this year’s event features the works of artists around the world and the crystalline castles, monstrous stark-white sculptures and frozen corridors they’ve spent weeks building. Head to the Atlantic to see some highlights from this year’s spectacle.
