Hugh Broughton's research station made ready for voyage to Antarctica

Hugh Broughton's Halley IV research station is prepared for shipping to the Antarctic

This alien object on the dockside in Cape Town, South Africa, is the Halley VI Research Station, designed for the British Antarctic Survey by Hugh Broughton Architects with Faber Maunsell.

Following trial assembly, it will be dismantled for shipping to Antartica on 8 December. So complex is the assembly in that harsh environment that it will not be ready for occupation until January 2010.
