First Colony on Mars: International Ideas Competition
First Colony on Mars: International Ideas Competition is an international competition open to all persons. The idea of a human colony in a planet far, far away from Earth has been a recurring theme of science fiction in writing and film. This ideas competition extends the theme to architecture and design of the physical manifestations of the colony, enabling architects, designers and just about anyone to dream about how life in a colony far away from Earth could or should be like.
The brief calls for a design for the first human colony on planet Mars, to be built using materials from Planet Earth, to be transported across space in whole, or in part and assembled on Mars. It shall be designed for up to 50 couples who have been selected through balloting and comprise equally of males and females between 20-45 years of age. The colony is to be designed with an environment which is self-sufficient and self- sustaining for human population, with the understanding that the atmosphere and landscape on Planet Mars may not be conducive to the population. Basic infrastructure and amenities must address atmosphere, climate, shelter, water,
food and security.
The competition aims to seek the best design and architectural solution that is innovative and self-sustaining which can grow and thrive.
