Exhibition curated by Nadim Samman.
The Antarctic Pavilion brings together leading international architects and artists to explore present and future models of living with Antarctica.
Almost without exception, Antarctic stations are designed by engineers with minimal aesthetic regard for living conditions. How does their pseudo-architecture circumscribe man’s relationship with the continent? More importantly—What are the alternatives? The projects featured in this pavilion are directed towards other pasts, presents and futures whose relevance and power transcend South Polar geography. They propose an expanded Antarctic imaginary.
