Living off the grid in Antarctica is not just high tech, it’s a necessity, and a perfect opportunity to demonstrate high tech architectural solutions which are sustainable and renewable. There are no utilities to rely on, no grid, no anything… What you have here you bring with you. You must rely on your technology to survive, and these guys are doing it in style!
Meet Ice Lab. Scientific research labs in Antarctica.
“…Ice Lab brings together original drawings, models, photographs, films, ephemera and sources of inspiration for highly specialised, sci-fi looking polar research stations…”
They generate all their own electricity via wind turbines and solar panel arrays. Which they have plenty of natural resources for. The wind in Antarctica is fierce, and the sun shines bright! Solar energy is plentiful as is the wind, and easily meets all their energy needs.
How’s this for high tech off grid living!?
