Spectacular footage of the Canadian High Arctic Research Station revealed

June 1, 2018

Realized in a joint venture by EVOQ and NFOE, in collaboration with SNC-Lavalin, the Canadian High Arctic Research Station (CHARS) has garnered significant attention, not only for its cutting-edge facilities but especially for its integration of Inuit community-oriented spaces, values, art and heritage. The common areas in CHARS drew inspiration from Inuit Qaujimajatuqangit principles and are configured akin to the qalgiq (a place where gathering occurs-traditional community igloo). Large artworks woven into the very fabric of the station add to giving shape and meaning to the building’s interiors. As the final delivery of CHARS approaches, EVOQ has collaborated with photographer Alex Fradkin to capture the essence of this unique and striking architectural creation.

This project was designed to rigorous sustainability standards and has been submitted for LEED Gold Certification, pending review.
