The ‘Arctic Research Facility' project by the Polar Ants team (Anais Mikaelian, Bita Mohamadi, Laila Selim and Lukasz Szlachcic) proposes an “adaptable, mutable and contextual scientific research facility on the Arctic ice cap.” As there has been a steady influx of new discoveries of species and living organisms inhabiting the ice cover and Arctic waters within the last few years, the team aim to facilitate more explorations while making habitation of the Arctic more feasible.
