Research and Educational Consortium

The Future of the Arctic Architecture and Climate Dynamics

About the Project

«The Future of the Arctic Architecture and Climate Dynamics» is a voluntary association of universities, scientific institutions, enterprises implementing staff training programs for the Arctic zone of the Russian Federation, conducting research and practical activities on Arctic topics interested in development of Arctic zone territories of the Russian Federation.
The Consortium is focused on creating a scientific and educational space that provides high-quality information and analytical support for projects for development of Arctic zone territories of the Russian Federation, as well as coordination of scientific and educational activities.

Problems to be solved

  • Sea level rise
  • Soil degradation
  • Port malfunction
  • Destruction of all types of structures
In the past decade, the Arctic region has been under the influence of two powerful processes linked to global warming.
The first one is the widespread rise in sea level and the second is degradation of permafrost soils, leading to disruption of functioning of all ports and their infrastructure along the Northern Sea Route from Murmansk to Chukotka.
The second one causes destruction of all types of structures and infrastructural facilities in more than a third of the territory of the Russian Federation. This situation is a direct challenge to the architecture, requiring immediate search and development of unparalleled architectural solutions.
We already have a definite idea of the process of working with the southern lands, while specifics of the northern zones remain in question and this makes the topic of Arctic improvement actual for a consideration.

Cultural Heritage

Despite the small number, the ethnic population studies the languages of their ancestors and preserves cultural traditions.
