Arctic Design: The systemic development of a new domain

Svetlana Usenyuk-Kravchuk and Nikolai Korgin

The paper presents the early stage of developing Arctic Design as a general theoretical framework for design/development actions in extreme environments. The main strands of research include (1) the self-definition of the domain through compiling a subject area ontology; and (2) modelling strategies for sustainable interaction between humans and technologies in an extreme environment through developing artistic/imagery characteristics corresponding to the environmental/climatic, socio-cultural and psychological peculiarities of use. The paper outlines the research basis, expected results and a brief report of what has been done to date.

Keywords: Arctic design, methodology, subject area ontology, complex evaluation mechanism, work-in-progress
