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.
