What is arctic design?

The Arctic climate offers enormous possibilities, but also poses some intriguing challenges for design from the viewpoints of housing, construction, infrastructure, travel, wellbeing and tourism. With the temperature well below zero, the landscape covered with pure white snow, day light hours minimal, and night skies lit with Aurora Borealis in the winter, or quite the opposite, with 24h sunlight in the summertime, Rovaniemi is precisely the right platform for Arctic Design.
