Want to learn how design can help sustain people living in isolation? The Architecture Centre is hosting a Zoom talk with Hugh Broughton on Thursday 30 April at 7 PM.
The talk will be based on Hugh’s experience of designing research stations in Antarctica – buildings whose residents live in complete darkness during winter and are cut off from the rest of the world for long periods of time.
