Step into a full-scale Mars home, immerse yourself in the untouched beauty of the landscape and learn how rethinking daily life for a zero-waste, clean energy-powered civilisation might help future generations on Earth.
Children born today are the first who might witness a human mission to Mars in their lifetime. It’s one of humanity’s great challenges and everything will need to be designed – but should we even be going?
The exhibition features immersive environments, about 200 objects including contributions from NASA, the European Space Agency and SpaceX; NASA’s 3D-Printed Mars Habitat Challenge winners, AI SpaceFactory; robotic builders by Foster & Partners; the first sustainable urban design for Mars, Mars City Design; the first spacesuit designed for the Mars surface.
Airchaise was designed when speculating about the future of furniture for humans living in Mars. The project’s main intention was to establish a digital production workflow using spacecraft recycled plastics, leading to a familiar and comfortable solution for the astronauts’ life. This challenging idea comes to reality with
the Airchaise. Its soft and ergonomic lines created by computer-generated structural principles favour resting in today’s homes,
stating that the future is indeed now.
