The ARDN project seeks to establish wide reaching networks of rapid depolyable research stations in the Artic region to study the changing ice and permafrost. The ssytem is a flexible kit of parts that can adapt to produce insulated housing units, reseaerch labs, and community spaces. A nodal cirulation system links clusters of program spaces as a rhisomatic network of interconnection. The floating pylon foundation system allows the structure to adapt to changing ground and ice conditions.
