Goodwood Festival, Chichester, West Sussex
Foster + Partners will detail its vision of life on Mars and the Moon at the UK’s Goodwood Festival of Speed 2018. Forming part of the festival’s Future Lab event, the vision will be presented through a range of models, robotics, and futuristic designs exploring the future of life in space.
The firm’s showcase will include a virtual reality experience, allowing visitors to explore the inside of a proposed state-of-the-art habitation pod.
The FutureLab, returning for its second year, is an event taking place at the Goodwood Festival of Speed which hosts “some of the most innovative and forward-thinking visions of future technology.”
Foster + Partners will explore the development of habitats on Mars and the Moon using a wide range of technologies, including 3D-printing, robotics, and Regolith Additive Construction, which uses loose soils and rocks on the lunar surface. Foster + Partners will also showcase a robotic arm, programmed to create plastic objects.
The vision on display at Goodwood will not be the first engagement between Foster + Partners and the Final Frontier, with the firm awarded top prize in NASA’s 3D-Printed Mars Habitat Challenge in 2017.
