dc.description.abstractThis thesis investigates changing conditions in the Canadian Arctic. Reduced yearly sea ice extent due to anthropogenic global climate change has spurred a significant increase in marine traffic within the Canadian Arctic archipelago. Simultaneously, aerospace developments have resulted in more trans-polar flights connecting Europe and Asia to North America. Increased activity in the Arctic poses both opportunity and risk to the people and environment. This thesis proposes seasonally responsive infrastructure in Cambridge Bay, a community located centrally in the Canadian North. The infrastructure provides a platform for search and rescue services and environmental disaster response while actively engaging the local population. It also proposes methods for increasing operational and resource autonomy from the south. The North has a strong climatic seasonality and regional implications that add spacial and temporal complexity/considerations to construction projects. This thesis strives to adapt to and not fight against the realities of the Canadian Arctic.en_US
