The Modernization of McMurdo Station, Antarctica VIA ZOOM
Join OZ Architecture principal Rick Petersen as he discusses the firm's redesign of McMurdo Station, Antarctica, a scientific research center at the bottom of the world. Currently, a 65-year old station serves as the primary logistical hub for the National Science Foundation's Polar Program, supporting inquiry across 5 realms of science. The focus of McMurdo's modernization is the improvement of resource efficiency and to support the wellness and well-being of up to 1,200 researchers living and working in the driest, coldest, windiest place on Earth.
Presented in conjunction with Antarctica: More than Meets the Eye, an upcoming exhibit on the LTER, online and in-person at the CU Museum of Natural History.
Moderated by Dr. Leanne Elder, Antarctic Researcher and Collections Manager of Invertebrate Zoology at the CU Museum of Natural History.
