The multi-planetary studio AI SpaceFactory has created TERA, a 3D printed, eco-sustainable house created to live on Mars.

The mission of AI SpaceFactory is fully understood only by reading the description of the company that is proposed on their website “AI SpaceFactory is a multi-planetary architectural and technology design agency, building for earth and space.” and their latest project could not represent it better. It’s called TERA and it’s a home that offers perfect accommodation both on Earth and on Mars

Yes, following the latest discoveries and studies in the field of space, it seems that the possibility of spending a few days on Mars is not so far away, so the AI SpaceFactory team have designed a house that would allow a stay on the red planet with all the comforts you want. 

First of all, TERA is entirely made of a biopolymer basalt composite, made from corn and sugar cane waste, printed in 3D. It is thanks to the use of a 3D printer that it was possible to build TERA in a cylindrical shape, with a diameter that widens at the center and narrows at the ends. In addition, the material used, in addition to being an environmentally sustainable material is much more resistant than the classic materials commonly used such as concrete or steel and is entirely compostable. This feature makes TERA the perfect home for both Mars and our Planet. Adopting this type of construction in the construction sector would greatly reduce the waste of non-recyclable materials. 

But if for an extra-planetary stay we still have to wait, for one inside TERA no, in fact, has been placed a little outside New York, hidden in the woods and overlooking the river Hudson and can be booked online.
