During Beijing Design Week 2015, designers, architects and innovators from across the world have come together to research and reflect upon the city’s current living standards.

Habitat, Mars – why not?


French 3D-printing company Fabulous has brought together a team of scientists and architects to imagine a bubble-shaped habitat for Mars that can be printed on the red planet.

The Sfero house features an internal and external dome, with a protective pocket of water between the two. A single corridor rests on the planet’s surface and allows access to the interior, which would have an upper and lower level linked by a spiral staircase.
