Designing humanity’s future on the Red Planet: the clothes, cutlery and habitats of everyday life on another world

Moving to Mars is the first book ever to thoroughly explore the crucial role that design will play in the collective endeavor to travel to and inhabit Mars.

A comprehensive overview of both past and current developments in space travel and colonization, it begins with the evolution of the space suit and rocket technology; it then proceeds to explore a wide range of fascinating and never-before-seen projects on Mars-specific habitations, covering everything from space-ready cutlery to clothes, furniture and speculative habitats.

Illustrated with color images of rarely seen drawings, concepts and prototypes, plus newly commissioned essays by the designers, artists and scientists who are charting the path forward to Mars, this book literally reveals a whole new future for humankind, fleshing out a vision of an everyday reality on another planet.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

New York Times

Eve Kahn

[Moving to Mars: Design for the Red Planet] surveys a century of proposals for resettling adventurers many millions of miles from home.

New York Magazine: Strategist

If you can’t get to Mars... you can at least buy this book. Flip through concepts and prototypes that imagine how we might get to the red planet, what we’ll wear on the way, and how far underground we’ll have to build our homes if we expect to keep living.

'Moving to Mars: Design for the Red Planet' is a Strategist Most Giftable Coffee-table Book 2019!

This 2015 rendering of inflatable Mars Habitat modules by Foster + Partners is reproduced from Moving to Mars: Design for the Red Planet, one of The Strategist's 41 Most Giftable Coffee-table Books of 2019. "Classical twentieth-century Modernism is one kind of planetary imagination," Fred Scharmen writes, "one that sees worlds as things that can be rationalized by an approach to architecture that flattens difference and imposes its own logic on new territory. Mars is not a new world—it's an old one. Four billion years ago it may have been not so different from Earth. Mars has been many planets in the past, and Earth may end up being many other kinds of planet in the future. We will need new kinds of building for all of these worlds, on Earth as much as elsewhere. Habitat projects for Mars are hints that other kinds of architectural planetary imaginations might be possible." See other Staff Picks Holiday Gifts for the Stargazer here! continue to blog
