Πέμπτη, Μάιος 30, 2019

With space exploration entering its golden age, we will now need architects and designers to create interplanetary human habitation beyond Earth. Architecture on our home planet is bound to its different cultures, sciences, traditions, and technologies. These considerations will also weigh while designing habitation on the lunar surface so that we can go beyond mere engineering in the process of making human life sustainable there. We now have a significant opportunity to define what architecture beyond the boundaries of Earth might be; an opportunity to design archi-tecture for the other worlds.A place beyond our Mother Planet that may hold precious resources to support activity in outer space. It could be a home to scientific treasures that could help us understand our planet better.

Visionaries in the field, like Elon Musk and his SpaceX, already have for-mulated plans to send the first humans – Japanese billionaire, Yasaku Maezawa with a group of artists – in space, on a loop around the Moon and back to Earth in 2023. It signfies great opportunities for the future of Lunar Tourism for space enthusiasts. The new phase in lunar exploration is fundamentally different than the previous ones. This novel wave in scientific research will focus on under-standing lunar resources and to prepare the Moon’s surface for sustained human presence and experimenting as training grounds for conducting and launching upcoming human missions to Mars and other destinations. The establishment of a long-term human settlement on its surface will be an architectural ode to this inspiration. The settlement would also be a relevant part of the future of lunar explorations as well as a chance to pioneer a new wave of architecture in space.

We invite visionaries from all profes-sions, Architects, Designers, Engineers, and Space Enthusiasts to envision and design this near yet unseen future. The participants are to design a Lunar Experience Centre + Research Centre for the first humans – 10 tourists and 5 researchers – to enhance their stay on The Experience Centre will help the Space Enthusiasts visiting the lunar sur-face for the first time to understand it and draw inspiration from the surround-ings. The Research Centre would assist the Researchers in comprehending the environment on the Moon and its suit-ability in sustenance of human life.The participants have to design a self-sustaining living space for these The spaces for the program include Living Areas l Sleeping Areas l Cooking Area l Research Areas l Interaction Spaces l Areas for Sanitation and Bath l Recreation Areas l Controlled Areas for Farming l AV Room l Exhibition Area l Stores for resources I Observatory I Medical center l Control and Surveil-lance Area l Rover Parking and Any other spaces that the participant wishes to specify with respect to both The designed spaces exude comfort for the visitors and the researchers. It should provide for a variety of spaces that boast of ample natural light, inno-vative materials and their positive effect.
