Defense of the Glacier / Conceptual Architecture

Defense of the Glacier
Defense of the Glacier

Greenland features the thickest ice sheet in Arctic, which may soon crack in ten years due to severe global warming. According to the research, one of the major causes is that relatively warm Mediterranean water flows across the seamount and touches the bottom of ice sheets, accelerating the glacier recession.
Santa Claus, who has been lived in Arctic, determines to take action.
A high wall to prevent the warm water flow from contacting with ice sheets can slow down the melting process and even to recover from glacier recession. Santa’s new house is built on the high wall, standing out to defend the glacier in Arctic.
