The Great White Continent of Antarctica reveals more of its secrets from September 2014.

The Cape Hallett Station was a joint scientific base for the United States and New Zealand, built during the first International Geophysical Year (1957-1958) and finally abandoned in 1973, nine years after a fire destroyed the main scientific laboratory.

The Hallett Station buildings were dismantled by Antarctica New Zealand between 2000 and 2006 and gifted to Canterbury Museum. During NZ IceFest the Station will be reconstructed to provide a unique visitor experience.

Ice Lab : New Architecture and Science in Antarctica exhibition offers the chance to be wowed by the ingenuity and creativity of the finest research stations existing today.

Commissioned by the British Council and curated by The Arts Catalyst, Ice Lab: New Architecture and Science in Antarctica is an international touring exhibition and visits Otago next. It will feature five innovative designs of Antarctic research stations, illustrating how contemporary architecture is enabling scientists to live and work in one of the most extreme environments on our planet.

These two exhibitions will be open from 30 August at Canterbury Museum. Ice Lab concludes on 23 November 2014. Cape Hallett Station continues to 8 Febuary 2015.

Ice Lab is on loan from the British Council and is part of NZIceFest.
