This paper aims to give an insight into the compressive strength of the icecellulose composite which was recently used to build two challenging reinforced ice structures in Juuka, Finland: (1) a large reinforced arch bridge inspired by Leonardo Da Vinci and (2) a hypar shell inspired in Félix Candela. A comparison with the behaviour of ice specimens extracted from the Lake Pielinen is also provided.
