Greenland - Arctic The process used engages with color and light to study the efficiency of the building in the arctic context. Color therefore show the alteration in temperature for each area of the project. It also examines the sources of light and the propagation of light towards the interior. The project in these conditions adapts by locating some of its programs, that needs to stay cold, imbedded within the ice, whereas the ones that needs heat are elevated to a level higher than the ground floor. It also orientates based on wind circulation, to reduce wind in some areas, and use the high wind to accumulate snow in other areas.
