No matter how much fantasy about Mars has emerged, it has to be admitted that humans are not ready to go to Mars. Currently, space agencies and scientific teams from around the world are working hard to meet the day when the first Earth humans were sent to Mars. But once we set foot on this red planet, we need to live.
In the distant future, settling Mars may become a reality. The first batch of people who choose Mars as the ultimate destination will need powerful and easy to use housing.
A few days ago, a design firm called Open Architecture and Xiaomi worked together to publish their vision of the art concept map of the Martian habitat
The Mars capsule looks like a combination of a steampunk-style camper and an extraterrestrial cockpit. The interior design adopts the minimalist design which is easily accepted by people.
The project, called the Mars Living Pod, is a Mars home built by Millet and Open Architecture Architecture for young people.
Open Architecture describes the structure of Mars life capsule as follows:
Two hundred years ago, Thoreau lived alone on the Walden lake to reflect on the true meaning of life.
Today, as we face an era of environmental crisis and endless desire for consumption, Open Architecture and Millet provide a valuable opportunity to jointly open an exploratory experiment on future life, to explore the possibility of building and product integration, to explore how design can influence and guide future life; To explore whether the future residence can work with us to break away from the bondage of reality and pursue the ultimate tranquility and freedom.
We put the experiment in an extreme situation.
When we begin to look at the essence of material life from minimalism, when we begin to cherish every drop of water, every portion of food, and every strand of fresh air, is it true to find that peace and freedom? Is it the essence of our future residence? And this kind of thinking in extreme situations may be the most precious inspiration for our lives on Earth today.
When millet creates home-based technology and architecture, when space is released to a free way of life, when network connections between products are upgraded to physical connections, home becomes a recycling system of energy, water and air.
This is the first home Open Architecture and Millet have built for young people: the MARS Case / Mars capsule, a self-recycling, zero-pollution home, a mobile home based on the ultimate transport size of 2.4m * 2.4m * 2m, which can be flexibly expanded with the lightest inflatable materials, and one that allows us to freely pursue our ideal country. Future home.
The idea sounds fantastic and fits into the garbage-free plan that Mars travelers may try to follow in the future, but it's still in the conceptual stage. Settlements may not have been considered when the first humans were sent to Mars, but if the idea of a Mars capsule had been realized, it would have been shortly after humans landed on Mars.
It's more likely that astronauts will make the most of the material collected from Mars itself to build a habitat, or to build 3D print structures in flight, than to take a pre-built house to Mars. But in any case, the Mars living cabin is a worthwhile idea.
