Ice Lab: New Architecture and Science in Antarctica

Ice Lab: New Architecture and Science in Antarctica is now closed.

This beautiful exhibition showcased contemporary architecture and research in one of the most isolated places on Earth.

Featuring some of the most innovative and progressive examples of contemporary architecture in Antarctica, it brought together original drawings, models, photographs, films, ephemera and sources of inspiration for highly specialised, sci-fi looking polar research stations.

These groundbreaking projects align cutting edge technology and engineering, with aesthetics, sustainability and human need.
