The 21st century has seen a surge in innovative architecture in the Polar regions – architecture that is not only beautiful but also meets the rising needs of the scientists living and working within the buildings. In the New York Times article “The Coolest Architecture on Earth Is in Antarctica” you can read about some of the leading architectural practices designing research stations for one of the harshest environments on the planet, including Hugh Broughton Architects.

Hugh Broughton Architects’ design of the Halley VI Research Station has received worldwide acclaim, and is seen by many as a project that provoked a new way of thinking. As it says in the article:

“Mr. Broughton, who is currently in Antarctica designing New Zealand’s Scott Base, noted with interest ‘how the approach to these projects has changed so dramatically in such a short period of time.’ His peers are quick to credit him for much of that change. As Mr. Buecking put it, ‘when the U.K. built Halley VI, many nations realized the importance of doing something special, and not just doing something.’”
