Architecture for Antarctica.

Two of my favorite subjects.

The competition for The British Antarctic Survey's design for a new base (Halley VI) has been won by Faber Maunsell and Hugh Broughton Architects. Check out the intricate design plan. The buildings will be placed on movable legs with skis at the bottom of each leg, so when they need to be moved, to avoid floating away on a detached slab of ice, they're just lowered down and moved by a bulldozer.
