Ice Lab: New architecture and science in Antarctica
Ice Lab is the first exhibition to focus on contemporary architecture in Antarctica and features architectural drawings, models, photographs and films that evoke a sense of what it takes to live and work in Antarctica, including a light and audio installation by international visual artist Torsten Lauschmann. Commissioned by the British Council and curated by The Arts Catalyst, Ice Lab gives a unique view of the inspiration and ingenuity behind architecture and science in the most isolated place on earth.
Learn about the design of five cutting-edge research stations, from British station Halley VI to the speculative Iceberg Living Station. Discover the diverse and cutting edge science that takes place on the frozen continent: from collecting 4.5 billion year old meteorites that illuminate how the solar system was formed to drilling ice cores whose bubbles of ancient air reveal the earth’s climate history; from cutting edge astronomy amongst the world’s clearest skies to studying its Dry Valleys - the closest thing to ‘Mars on Earth’.
