Huts, research stations, shelters, monuments or maritime landmarks: human constructions in Arctic and Antarctic are a benchmark for a world that the imagination still thinks be immaculate.Architecture marks might be sensed here as pre-ruins, next to vestiges. The human presence look like incongruous in these remote area. Fine and coloured geometries lost in white stretches that we imagine extending to infiniteā€¦In contrast with natives peoples constructions, the architecture of conquest is here scientific, industrial.Almost cosmonaut: humans on a planet.
