Main BodyFeatured in the Architecture Gallery at Harbourfront, Deep Freeze includes work by Kobayashi + Zedda Architects, Lateral Office and mayer sattler-smith, with a visual arts installation by Erin Riley. Building for the northern climate is a difficult endeavour. Snow, severe temperatures and shortened periods of sunlight are just a few of the variables needed to consider when designing for the North. Deep Freeze analyzes this evolving region and presents projects of new architecture being built in the north by firms allied to the north. It also presents current creative research and advanced inventive insights that respond to dilemmas faced by Arctic development.
