MARS ARCHITECTURE WORKSHOP

En anglais, vous l’aurez compris

The Mars Architecture Workshop is devoted to the exploration of the computational design capabilities applied to Space Architecture. 

The workshop goal is to design a resilient and sustainable infrastructure for human missions on Mars. This new design challenge requires a new design holistic approach, in which computational design plays a key role. Indeed, Space Architecture relies on some fundamental pillars that are intrinsically interconnected: space sciences, engineering, industrial design, ergonomics, medicine, psychology, and art.

Students will be challenged to work in teams within a cross-disciplinary environment at different scales, from urban to architecture and interior design, relying on the knowledge and technologies developed for space applications. A challenge for both space and terrestrial architectures is to consider the relationships between human activities and the resources which support them. 

The Mars Architecture Workshop will bring a new computational design approach, also through advanced structural optimization algorithms, to this design challenge in order to sustainably support human space exploration on Mars.
