Although the probe created by the company headed by Elon Musk has landed a few weeks ago, there are already those who have projected their gaze into the future by designing the first sustainable city on Mars.
ABIBOO has in fact designed five different cities on the red planet with a capital that will be called Nüwa and in total will be able to go to live about a million human beings.
A project that define futuristic is an understatement, the architectural firm ABIBOO for the realization of this first project has collaborated with an international team of scientists and academics led by astrophysicist Guillem Anglada. Each city will host between 200,000 and 250,000 people, all of which will be located in obviously strategic points on the planet and will be built vertically, adapting to the soil of Mars.
If we were to construct buildings as they are on earth, the buildings would tend to explode due to pressure.
Architects and scientists have joined forces and their knowledge to create a sustainable and self-sufficient habitat, developing solutions that will allow future inhabitants to live in conditions more or less similar to those of our planet. A difficult task but not utopia, it will be possible to live on Mars despite the strong solar radiation, the possible fall of meteorites and the different atmospheric pressure.
In addition to thinking about the possible criticalities of the planet, the architects have also thought about how to make the lives of future inhabitants easier. In addition to the creation of parks and environments similar to our planet, there will also be automated greenhouses based on a hydroponic system that will allow having a substantial supply of supplies. In addition, it will be possible to travel between cities thanks to pressurized electric vehicles and for shorter distances, there will also be elevators designed ad hoc.
Waiting for the return of the probe that will make us discover something more about the red planet, its composition but also on the possible presence of water, we can only fantasize, hoping to see one day this project become reality.
