Mooo calls for architects, landscape architects, interior designers, product designers, urban thinkers, and individual designers to explore the notion of inclusive inhabitation in interplanetary journeys [Human Mission on Mars].
This competition assumes that the journey to Mars would take 9 months. Consider factors such as the diverse cultures represented by the 24 astronauts (backgrounds and relationships to be proposed by participants), the comfort in a cramped space, the absence of gravity, etc. Participants are invited to design the astronauts’ habitation spaces with a cockpit in the communal payload volume. The habitation spaces can be designed as part of the spacecraft, or as an assembly of components fitted in the payload volume.
Contextual Rendered Drawing: The Journey x 1
The first design requirement is to visualize your proposed communal payload volume in a rendered drawing. This will be your context drawing which expresses the ideas behind your proposal. The payload volume should manifest your concept of Inclusive Inhabitation. The designs do not need to be detailed, but the drawing must demonstrate a general configuration of the habitation spaces, and specifically how they link to each other.
Technical Drawings: The Volume x 2
The other two drawings will illustrate your design for the implementation of the cockpit and multiple functional spaces into the communal payload volume. The two drawings can be of any scale and any format, which may include and are not limited to 2D drawing, section, axonometric drawing, worm eye view drawing, etc.
The design must demonstrate the following:
- How your design exercises the potentials of diversity
- How the design fits into the communal payload volume
- The ability to benefit users of the space socially and culturally
- The proposal being an inclusive structure
