The development of housing that can fluctuate to meet the needs of a constantly shifting population will aid in the overall success of the Alaskan economy.

In Alaska, the significant variation in both climate and population make standard architectural applications impractical. The large variation in population between the summer and winter months has created a need for housing types that can hibernate seasonally to reduce the amount of necessary energy and maintenance. Not only would this produce a more suitable and environmentally conscious method of housing the seasonal population, but also increase the possibility of permanent residence.
