Clouds Architecture Office will present a few of their recent designs for human habitats in outer space, including the Icy Body Explorer, Venus Garden Tower, and Mars Ice House. The presentation will provide an overview of the projects, and how they fit into a design approach that has yielded challenging innovation to the typology of space architecture.
In recent years, there has been a renewed interest in space exploration, space tourism and space industry, all of which will involve people living and working in outer space. As architects who design environments on earth, we are interested in the experiential qualities of architecture, ways in which form and material can elicit lasting emotional or cognitive revelations. Our ambition is to create conditions that allow for a resonant experience by the synthesis of ideas through design. We have applied this approach to three project proposals for different locations in our solar system.
