  • Polar Ants: Arctic Research Facility

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    lukasz SZLACHCIC, anais MIKAELIAN, laila SELIM, & bita MOHAMADI: Architecture defines, articulates and mediates the relationship between a physical environment and inhabitation. The primary investigation of this project is to balance this relationship through a dynamic study of material behavior. This project therefore proposes a living architecture, and challenges the classical modernist notions of permanence and stability. The theme of this proposal necessitates an equally responsive environment. As such, the project is located on the ice cap of the Arctic Ocean; an environment which exhibits harsh climatic conditions for human survival as well as constantly fluctuating physical surroundings.

    SONG qin & XIAOLIANG lu: Although it is a fairy tale, we are inspired by the story about Sisyphus. In ancient time, Sisyphus was punished by being compelled to roll an immense boulder up a hill, only to watch it roll back down, and to repeat this throughout eternity. Why can’t we consider architecture construction as an eternal process?

Viewlines extending from the opposite side of the expressway are used for coordinating internal spacial organization such that at any moment on the external journey, only specify parts of the machines are visible.
