We need more architects and artists for human mission in Space exploration, and vice-versa, architects and artists need to explore outside of our “world”. Imagining the near future life, a second home for us on Mars.
It is not so far away when NASA, Virgin Galactic, SpaceX and hopefully other private companies will start sending people to the Red planet. If Architects and Artist step up, start to design the blueprint of our living environment, that will allow a possibility for human to be real multi-planetary species, living beyond survivability: to live and to love on Mars.
“Life on Mars must be more fun than on Earth. How can we make that happen?” What do we need to start the journey, building towards that realization of future civilization on Mars, a new world, the new hope and maybe our new way to think about human life.
Mars City Design was successfully creating its first international competition, crowdfunded workshop, and Gala Award Ceremony with the one and only Buzz Aldrin announcing the winners 2016. This will be our second year, with more prize, more sponsors and more Martian knowledge.
