Performed under NASA engineers and space architects supervision in Houston (TX), Farmining Village presents a construction strategy in a scenario where Mars is being colonized by humans : after 50 years of comprehensive on-site observation, the human civilization aims to expand and implant on this newly discovered land. In order to maintain further long-term research investigation on site and to turn Mars into a permanent sustainable livable environment, this project tackled the following challenges :
to introduce a new living cycle for Martians (permanently based residents).
to design infrastructures that can maintain the livability on Mars.
to examine the feasibility of developing sustainable village scale units (±20 inhabitants)
