Design: Good to see some evidence of architectural thought for Mars habitats
Interesting to see some modular design features appearing in some of the designs.
Given that the construction method is printing, I would question why this is the case, perhaps it might be to create some cognitive connection to how its done back home, so as not to alienate the inhabitants [?]
Outside images dominate too, although, given the outdoor conditions, it is more likely that the interior will become the facade.
What we also know is that acceleration due to gravity is significantly less than on earth, and yet we see no discernible difference to the familiar dome [arch] structures designed for 9.8m/s2, down here, and no lofty expression of floating, in the way the proposed structures contact with the ground.
Makes me think are we really ready to let go of home.
