Would you want to move to Mars?
Humans are optimised for life on earth: we need gravity, oxygen, specific temperatures, clean water and the ability to produce food and process waste. This architectural project describes the design challenges in building the kinds of systems for living on Mars that we increasingly take for granted on Earth. The drawings invite innovation but also raise the question: can designing for life on Mars teach us ways to live more sustainably on the planet we have?
