Contemporary Buildings in the Antarctic

Architecture in Antarctica
Antarctica is the southernmost continent in the world. We’ve selected what we feel are the key examples of Antarctica Architecture. We aim to include Antarctic buildings / projects that are either of top quality or interesting, or ideally both.
We cover completed Antarctica buildings, new building designs and architectural exhibitions. We also post architecture competitions across Antarctica.
