Site DescriptionConstructed on the last continent of human exploration, the Antarctic Exploration Huts are reminders of the significant physical and mental challenges early explorers endured throughout the late 19th and early 20th centuries on the Antarctic continent. Ten different countries launched seventeen major expeditions throughout this time, and the huts provided enough shelter to make their stay in one of the coldest places on the planet manageable. Reflecting human ingenuity and drive during the age of exploration, these structures are a testament to the power of the unknown and what is possible when people are determined to understand it.
Project DescriptionGeometria conducted digital documentation work for Antarctica New Zealand Event K021, a scientific collaboration between conservation architects Archifact, the University of Minnesota, the University of Waikato, Bath University, Hong Kong University, and Western Cape University. Through this collaboration, researchers have been able to monitor deterioration of the huts over time, combining different methodologies such as laser scanning with scentific approaches in biology and chemistry. Geometria donated data from three Antarctic Expedition Huts to CyArk in 2010.
