Halley station in Antarctica (Photo: hbarchitects.co.uk)It was down to faith. That is the reason Hugh Broughton, architect, started designing buildings for the extreme conditions in Antarctica.

Blistering wind and temperatures below 0 every day of the year calls for unique designs. BUt there are more concerns. Moving ice and long distances do not make the designing any easier.

In a fascinating interview with the Arctic Portal, Hugh described the design of infrastructure in the South Pole. He gave us an insight to the British Station, Halley, he designed.

He has also looked at other projects in Antarctica and even considers the designs usable in other locations.

Below is the interview with Hugh.
