Nunavut buildings

I don't remember where I took these pictures from, but these are houses in the towns of Iqaluit and Igloolik in Nunavut, Canada's northernmost territory. Due to the extremely low temperatures and freezing winds, these are not build from regular building material but from resilient plastic if I recall correctly. Check out the link for a portrait of the typical Nunavut community Gjoa Haven, population 1000.
