The British Antarctic Survey has picked three engineering-architectural teams to develop designs for its new new Halley VI Research Station. Buro Happold with Lifschutz Davidson (bottom), FaberMaunsell and Hugh Broughton Architects (right), and Hopkins Architects with Expedition Engineers will visit Antarctica to conduct detailed research into the kind of structure needed to survive in one of the world's most hostile environments. They have been asked to develop designs capable of withstanding extreme cold and metres of snowfall, and that can also be relocated as Antarctica's Brunt Ice Shelf moves at a rate of 400m a year.
