Transformable Antarctic Research Facility
Architecture student Sergiu-Radu Pop, unveiled development plans for a new Antarctic research facility. With its sci-fi like design the project envisions a sprawling center for vital research as well as environmental tourism, filled with spaces like exhibition halls, exercise rooms, accommodation, conference chambers, observation decks, and port transportation stations.
"In 2009, researchers from the University of Rochester conducted a study tracking the success of 147 recent graduates in reaching their stated goals after graduation. Some had “intrinsic” goals, such as deep, enduring relationships. Others had “extrinsic” goals, such as achieving reputation or fame. The scholars found that intrinsic goals were associated with happier lives. But the people who pursued extrinsic goals experienced more negative emotions, such as shame and fear. They even suffered more physical maladies."
