Below are some conceptual ideas for a mobile shelter in Barrow which serves the community as a gathering space and warm-up hut. This concept defines modules that can be combined in different ways during construction, and fixed to skis for mobility. The shelter could serve the community when they bring in whales on the point, have bonfires or barbecues on the beach, or gather for burials in the cemetery.
Below are some of the background information and studies performed to create this modular mobile design.
The images below give some context to two of the potential locations of the shelter: the beachfront near Barrow/Browerville, and the whale landing site out near the point.
