Sergiu Radu Pop, Austrian Architect/Designer/Concept Artist came up with this structure: the Transformable Antarctic Research Facility. Its goal and purpose are “to investigate the range of architectural qualities within research facilities and its generative potential for new building typologies in an extreme environment.”

With that in mind, it should come as no surprise that this Research Facility can adapt and change depending on the conditions it is installed in: it is modeled on the complexity and multi-layers of natural organisms while creating an environment in which the highly specialized sciences needed for research can viably take place.

“The project rigorously addresses the context of the site of Antarctica by nesting the volume in a linear and vertical system depending on its location within the topography and its orientation and at the same time by the parameters of constant mutability and transformation in reaction to the every changing site.”

Wether we are in the science field or not, just admire the fantastic architecture and design of this project! I feel as though I have taken on the set of one of my favorite sci-fi movies… or maybe this is just what the future looks like!
