On May 6th, the Trienal de Arquitectura de Lisboa and CCB received Michael Morris and his apresentation – 5 Houses for Mars – about the materials found in the atmosphere of the red planet and the technologies adopted. Research on local resources, such as polyethylene, regolith (Mars cement) and ice, aims at the projection, extraction, production and robotic printing of habitats, anticipating the arrival of humans to Mars. This conference, just like every others from the Critical Distance cycle, aims to amplify the reflection field in generational and typological terms, including emergent authors and ways of design beyond convencional programs.
