At Goodwood Foster + Partners will show Mars and lunar pod concepts

Foster + Partners will present its vision of life on Mars and the Moon as part of its Future Lab showcase at the Goodwood Festival of Speed 2018.


The British architecture firm will show a range of models, robotics and futuristic designs developed by the firm to explore the future of life in space.

Forming a central part of its display will be a scale model based on the Mars and lunar habitation pods it has designed. While through a virtual reality animation, visitors will be able to see inside one of these proposed state-of-the-art habitation pods.

Foster + Partners continues to work on projects that look at developing habitats on the Moon and Mars using a wide variety of technologies such as large-scale 3D-printing, robotics and Regolith Additive Construction. A wide range of these techniques will be displayed at the expo, bringing the possibilities of creating an extraterrestrial habitat to life for visitors.
