#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. The Information and Analytical Center of the State Commission for the Development of the Arctic has developed a design code for Arctic settlements. With its help, it is planned to design the urban space and solve the problems of improvement of the Arctic territories.
The existing documents on the environment development and improvement do not take into account the specifics of the North. And these are extremely low temperatures, polar night and day, blizzards and fogs.
The developers decided to fix this and included elements of the Arctic and northern territories in the design code – catching screens, ventilation windows, side boxes for food storage placed on the windows. The document also provides recommendations on the design of signs on various types of buildings, their size.
Special attention is paid to the lighting, navigation, coloring of buildings, taking into account the natural and climatic features of the North. The design code contains requirements and recommendations for working with the visual environment of the Arctic settlements, which can be supplemented by each municipality based on regional characteristics and needs.
