The Arctic Spine, a region wide “Utilidor”, is a research and design project that looks at improving and nurturing the existing settlements in the Canadian Arctic. The term “Utilidor” speaks to a pipeline that carries basic utilities - heat, water, sewage and electricity lines, to provide the necessities for Arctic living. Inuvik, our sample study community, already has a “Utilidor” in the midst of the town, but it is poorly maintained, runs haphazardly over and around buildings, and provides insufficient utilities to the citizens.
