Iceberg Living Station Antarctica

This architectural proposal is a speculative design by David Garcia / MAP Architects (Denmark) for a future research station made entirely from ice, it negates the need to transport foreign materials to Antarctica. The station will be holed out of a large iceberg, using caterpillar excavators that are traditionally used to clear snow. It will eventually melt, resolving the issue of removing it at the end of its life course.

The MAP Architects studio is an architectural platform based in Copenhagen founded by architect David A. Garcia. The studio is active internationally, engaged mostly with projects in challenging environments. Our designs span through various scales and spheres of action, often challenging the status quo through inventiveness and a cross-disciplinary approach. Collaborative work with engineers and the scientific community, like our collaboration with UNESCO’s water resilience department, or NASA, is part of every project we undertake.
