Futuristic metropolis design on Mars cliffs

Until now, scientists have been working on plans to build a sustainable city on Mars. In addition, plans to build the city of Nüwa, a large-scale residential building complex that can accommodate 250,000 people on Hwaseong Fortress, have recently been unveiled.


According to a video released by the multinational architectural firm ABIBOO on the 21st, the city is located vertically on the side of a cliff rather than horizontally. This is a measure to make it less susceptible to strong radiation and low atmospheric pressure on Earth and other Mars.


Erect vertical buildings densely on the cliff for safety


According to the video, buildings of various shapes, both large and small, are densely packed on the huge cliff. Designers explain that when building a building, it can be built inside a cliff, and a new'Macro Building' can be unearthed from a place where there is a huge rock.


He said that in the city, offices, idle spaces, ordinary homes such as apartments, and other public and convenient facilities will be built on the basis of huge pillars or beams. It also announced that it plans to build a'Green Dome that serves as a park for residents or grows experimental vegetation. This space city design was designed based on the results of scientific research conducted by the Mars Society and SONET (Synchronous Optical NETwork).

Alfredo Munoz, founder of ABIBOO said, we conducted a lot of analysis based on computing, and worked with scientists to understand the new situations we face on Mars. I did.


He also said that in addition, he plans to review the characteristics of all major buildings in cities in the district and apply them to the Nuwa City plan.


The city name Nüwa is taken from the name of the goddess in Chinese mythology. Nuwa, which has strong energy and vitality and protects humanity, melted five rocks in the myth to create a strong pillar that supports the world.


The site of Nuwa City is the Tempe Mensa area on Mars, which is a wrinkled area from the Mars observation probe, as if a river flowed in the past. Space scientists plan to build five cities here, with Nuwa City being the first.


In Tempe Mensa, this massive urban design is possible because of the presence of water and carbon dioxide on the surface.


Munoz said, these materials can help Mars get materials suitable for architecture. We plan to use only Mars materials to build the city.

Urban construction on Mars is expected from 2054


According to the'Daily Mail' on the 21st, those who dream of living on Mars, such as Elon Musk, predict that the construction of cities on Mars can begin in 2054. However, even if the city was built, there is no plan to do mass migration before 2100. This is because there are many things to prepare, such as securing sufficient oxygen and water for humans to live on Mars, and effectively preventing cosmic radiation. The oxygen needed to live on Mars will be produced from plants grown on Mars, and energy will be produced from specially designed solar panels.


The main food needed by urban residents is harvested from crops grown on Mars, which is expected to account for about half of the total diet. In particular, microalgae is expected to be an essential element of the whole diet. Recreation was the focus of this design. Since they live in remote areas, people should enjoy a variety of entertainments, from sports to camping, arts and performances, and crafts, and we designed an environment where anyone can easily participate in recreation. The reason for this specific design is that the road to Mars is getting safer and faster due to the recent advances in science and technology.


On December 30, 2016, when NASA's Langley Lab presented an igloo-shaped model of Mars inhabitants, they used the slogan'Congratulations on arriving at Mars after 200 days of flight .


However, recently scientists are seeing this travel time as one to three months. It is also expected that people will be able to travel between Earth and Mars at any time through the'shuttle spacecraft departing every 26 months. The estimated cost of a one-way ticket is about $300,000 (approximately 339 million won).


The founder of ABIBOO Munoz said, it's not easy, but the learning outcomes of developing a sustainable city on Mars are the know-how, ideas, and insights about what the Earth and other things can do, We provide. I think it is possible in terms of technology. Through the international community, we are looking to see if we have sufficient willingness to build the city of Hwaseong, and we are conducting consultations for diversity across both the private and public sectors.
