Antarctica, the land in World's edge

A strange feeling struck us when we first began working on this project, rather than a specific image. We architects are used to approaching architecture in cultural and social context. We were facing a land that had not been inhibited by human beings for billions of years, and were trying to add some design there. Creative work is a different thing from Creation. It is not about making out something from nothing but about listening to and understanding stories that already exist to retell them through our own voices. From an architect’s point of view, if there was something in Antarctica, it was an enormous void.

We decided to be fundamentally creative- looking at the same subject from a different angle. From where the void was we could find possibilities for new stories. We saw it the way it was: Antarctica has been a place the nature dwelled for eternity, not human beings. Our science has works to do there, but more than that the nature throwing us tasks. Without overcoming these challenges none of the activities would be allowed in Antarctica.

There was something special in this project. Engineering and design were given the equal weight of value from the beginning. We do always design buildings with technical requirements in mind, but this was the first time we saw technology and design compete with each other. There is a simple reason this happened. Without listening to considering both we would have never been able to overcome the unusual problems like extreme weather and conditions and the peculiar psychology of the user. We found it a fun task to add design to engineering itself and saw possibilities for a new area of architecture. With Jang Bogo Station built Terra Nova Bay would no longer be a void but a place where culture originates. We feel proud that Space Architecture and Urban has added a stroke to the history of the land.

This book is a record of our 70 days journey from the road show on August 3, 2010 to the announcement of the winner on Nov 4. It has the captures of the designers’ first impressions, of our deadlocks and confusions, and of struggling and cooperating with the engineers. We hope that our moments of fearless challenges in this book will be of use to the interested reader. Please cheer us and encourage us so than Space Architecture and Urban can demonstrate to the world the prominence of South Korea’s architecture.
