CUBE is pleased to announce the international design competition for students and fresh graduates from around the world to explore and express their views on the future of Egyptian settlements on Mars through their innovative and visionary proposals.
With many visionary organizations and their ground-breaking explorative studies and research, the unseen future of inhabiting the Red Planet is now a real possibility; an opportunity to create a utopian tomorrow, making mankind a multi-planetary species.
This competition is intended to envision a habitat for the first Egyptian colonizers on Mars. It challenges participants to design the future architectural prospect that would define a trend for the architecture of the upcoming human civilization on the Red Planet.
It is not enough to just travel to Mars and survive, it is essential to develop a way in which we can sustainably live on Mars. Figuring out how we could be comfortable living on the Red Planet is a challenge.
It’s about making Mars livable by completely transforming its environmental makeup through the construction of a human-made atmosphere to understand and solve one of the main problems for a fully breathable and livable Mars.
The objective of the competition is to propose a settlement complex including at least residential, research centre, educational, services and medical units and choose one/all of them to design a detailed prototype.
