"Mars Architecture" workshop by PAACADEMY - March 26-June 11, 2022

The "Mars Architecture" studio workshop by PAACADEMY (March 26-June 11, 2022) is devoted to exploring the computational design capabilities applied to space architecture.

The studio workshop led by Valentina Sumini and her team aims to design a resilient and sustainable infrastructure for human missions on Mars. This design challenge requires a new 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 thar support them.

The Mars Architecture Workshop will bring a new computational design approach to this design challenge in order to sustain human space exploration on Mars.
