Children born today are the first who might witness a human mission to Mars in their lifetime. It’s one of humanity’s great challenges and everything will need to be designed – but should we even be going? Step into a full-scale Mars home, immerse yourself in the untouched beauty of the landscape and learn how rethinking daily life for a zero-waste, clean energy-powered civilisation might help future generations on Earth.
Moving to Mars is an immersive exhibition transporting visitors to another planet. Exploring themes of sustainability, survival and space travel, exhibition envisions our journey to Mars and questions our right to settle there. The exhibition features immersive environments, 200 objects including contributions from NASA, the European Space Agency and SpaceX; NASA’s 3D-Printed Mars Habitat Challenge winners, AI SpaceFactory; robotic builders by Foster & Partners; the first sustainable urban design for Mars, Mars City Design; the first spacesuit designed for the Mars surface; Christopher Raeburn’s new fashion collection inspired by the red planet and much more.
Led by Andrew Mashigo, this multisensory tour will explore the ways design can negotiate our relationship with our environment.
