The 134 recycled shipping containers used to construct the Bharathi Research Station in northeastern Antarctica are easy to erect, disassemble and transport. Bof Architekten of Hamburg, Germany, which won the con­tract from the Na­tio­nal Cen­ter for Antarc­tic and Oce­an Re­se­arch, wrapped the massive containers with an insulated, aerodynamic skin of metal panels that can withstand extreme temperatures. The site is entirely self-sufficient, using renewable sources of energy, in compliance with the terms of the Antarctic Treaty.
