Air/Port Capitalizes on Melting Ice
A concept design at this point, the Air/Port project is an effort to build a commercial hub near the Northwest Passage that will allow for a landing strip and a shipping port. The dual design will allow for existing air traffic to connect with the Port Churchill community while the Port component will take advantage of warmer global weather and the new sea routes it provides. In addition, greenhouse space in the structure creates an opportunity for growing food as an item for trade.
Personally, I don’t know how to feel about the concept. It’s an interesting design and certainly resourceful, but something seems so incredibly guilt-inducing about making the most of a global disaster that we’ve caused. Thoughts?
