Human Architecture vs. Alien Architecture, Part II

Humans live on a planet with many diverse environments and weather, allowing us to create many different designs and structures from a multitude of substances. But what about other exoplanets, where there might not be as many materials? On an icy body where the ice never melts, the first primitive aliens that live there might eat the ice to make energy and to breathe. They might live in a hive or colony society, building tall ice 'mounds' like the termites do. On an arid planet like Mars, aliens might live deep underground near liquid aquifers. As it revolves around the sun, the aquifer will fill up and drain into any lower chambers dug out for storage. The architecture would be unlimited, because underground you can spread out in any direction and can be carved out in any shape possible.
