Building a Martian House

This summer, Inflate worked with Bristol-based artists @ellaandnicki , @hba_london and @pearce_plus architects to create an inflatable building that explores how people would live on Mars.

If built on Mars, the inflatable membrane of the Martian House would contain living areas and a hydroponic growing room. Instead of air, the walls would be filled with Martian stones called regolith to protect the astronauts from the planet's radiation.

"The project uses the scenario of moving to Mars as a lens to reflect on our lives here on Earth – asking how we live now and how would we like to live in the future”


@buildingamartianhouse has been named as a regional finalist for the @civictrustawards
