Icon Engineering conceives new dimensions that will enable the expansion of human life on and beyond earth.
Architecture on Earth plays a critical role in the way we live. On the Moon first and later on Mars, this reaches a higher level of importance since buildings are also machines we depend on to keep us alive and well. In Space architecture, every design decision is of great consequence to the success of a mission.
Structures must be resilient and interior layouts must be tuned to mission demands. And yet, since sustained social and mental health are also mission-critical, Space habitats must be designed to be rich, useful and interesting worlds onto themselves. Lunar and Martian architecture usually falls into one of two categories: architecture imported from Earth fully assembled and architecture making use of local resources.
