How much we know about the south pole?

Most of the time if we talk about Antarctica, we always concern the visible such as ice-cover landmass, science, biology, penguins.

What is about the invisible thing if we think about Antarctica?

Let’s explore, how the idea can be a concept.

Starting from visible thing as number of population.

From the map which represent population, it can show the negative space where is not many people stay there in the black area.

The black area on the map that is bigger than the coast area, Why?

The main reason refers to accessibility. The south pole is the hardest to access and we found the topic interest is identity of the territory.

What is the identity of Antarctica?

Many people first think of the biology. Medias show have allowed us to visit virtually. They introduce us to the wildlife, which is what many first think of. 

The wildlife and scientists  is most concentrated on the coast. If we think of the identity of Antarctica as a barren frozen mountain range. This is map that represents that. There is a direct inverse relationship between the two. Because by definition a barren land lacks ecology.

This identity of a completely empty place is something that draws some humans. The race to the South Pole was concluded by Scott Amundsen and his crew, who all died.

We can think of the identity of Antarctica’s barrenness as something that claims anyone who lives on it. Identity of Antarctica is a project of IaaC, Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia developed at Master in City & Technology in (2019/2020) by:
