Open Architecture x Xiaomi Mars Case House

Published Jan 17, 2019

Beijing-based studio Open Architecture worked in collaboration with Chinese electronics giant Xiaomi to visualize what a compact living structure would look like in Mars.

“Assuming we’ll only be able to take the essentials, all of the service components will be inflatable allowing the entire 2.4m x 2.4m x 2m module to be folded for easy transportation. Resources will likely be minimal making recycling heat, energy, and water crucial. Each module will be fitted with an integrated ecosystem that will self-circulate, reusing everything from exhaust to condensation.”

The prototype was showcased outside the Bird’s Nest National Stadium, as part of the annual House Vision innovation project.
