Antarctic Architecture

Buildings are buildings are buildings … except when they’re in Antarctica, where the extreme environment make them look like futuristic spaceships that have landed on a desolate, frozen landscape.

Oobject has a neat gallery of antarctic architecture, including the one above - the British Antarctic base Halley VI, built by Titan Hydraulics. Work can only be carried out during the period when there is almost constant daylight and temperatures climb to -20° C and above.
