'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!
