THE SPATIAL PHYSICAL ENVIRONMENT OF TEMPORARY SETTLEMENT IN THE CONTEXT OF ROTATING SHIFT WORK

Architecton: Proceedings of Higher Education №2 (66) June, 2019

Significant remoteness of gas and oil fields from established settlements and developed infrastructure promoted the vakhtovyi (shift-work) method as a viable (having no alternative) strategy to overcome distances and harsh environmental conditions of the Russian Far North. The cyclical regime of shift-work adversely affects the psychological state of individuals: disrupting the process of adaptation to extreme climate and putting categories of “home” and “work” into a forceful disagreement in the human mind. The spatial environment of a temporary settlement (a work camp) is one of the key factors affecting the individual’s psychological state. The article argues that applied/practical aesthetics can be a useful tool for facilitating the adaptation process.

“THE SECOND SKIN”: INNOVATIVE PROPERTIES OF THE TRADITIONAL CLOTHES OF ARCTIC INDIGENOUS NOMADS

Architecton: Proceedings of Higher Education №4 (64) December, 2018

The article provides a brief overview of the ongoing project exploring methods of making and using traditional clothing for the conditions of the Arctic / Far North, with emphasis on cultural, social and physiological issues within the interaction system “man-clothing-environment”. The case study is centered on nomadic reindeer herders, i.e. the community of Nenets from the Yamal Peninsula. The scientific novelty of the research lies in using the tools and approaches of technological aesthetics (design) for solving complex problems of preserving human life and health in extreme natural conditions. The expected results will pave the way for a holistic methodology and practical recommendations on the systemic design of the material and spatial environment (transport-clothing-housing as a single life-support module) for the conditions of the Far North.
