Throughout the past decade the planet Mars has become an attractive point for thinking about the future of mankind. This seminar provides an overview of architectural proposals for inhabiting the Red Planet.

How would we live on Mars? How should we inhabit the Red Planet? Throughout the past decade, the planet Mars has become an attractive point for thinking about the future of mankind. From the construction of a port-type of a Mars Lab Habitat in the Negev Desert of Israel to the Mars Science City project in the United Arab Emirates, architects, entrepreneurs, and investors have thought about the challenge of designing extraterrestrial built environments.

This highly visual lecture provides insight and background to the current architectural ideas and constructive concepts underpinning the design of a future living on Mars. The lecture gives insight throughout the text, plans, drawings, and video while showcasing the broad array of proposals of building structures on the Red Planet.

Led by an expert on architecture and urbanism, Bert de Muynck, this interactive seminar will delve into current architectural proposals on how to imagine life on Mars. Designed to inform curiosity, participants will come away with an increased understanding of the constructive and spatial challenges of establishing future human communities on the Red Planet.

Bert is an architect and writer, and holds MAs in architectural engineering (Catholic University Leuven, Belgium) and cultural sciences (Free University Brussels). Born in Belgium, in the past decade he has lived and worked in architectural consultancy, writing, and academia in Amsterdam, Beijing, Shanghai, and now Lisbon, where he relocated in 2018. He is the co-director of "MovingCities", an independent research organisation investigating the role that architecture and urbanism play in shaping the contemporary city. Bert lived in China from 2006 to 2018, where he held academic positions at The University of Hong Kong (2011-14), China Academy of Art (2013-16), and Xian Liverpool University (2015-18).

Mars Architecture

Interesting topic and presentation. Generally well done, but the speaker sometimes went too fast with the slides (too fast for me to read them fully) and skipped a few (irritating!). Great visuals and overall very interesting.
