12 Futuristic Homes That Look Like They Belong in Outer Space
With NASA’s InSight lander roving across Mars, we have space travel on our minds. These sci-fi homes show us what life might look like if we lived on other planets.
On November 26, 2018, after a six-month journey across 300 million miles of space, NASA’s InSight lander safely reached Mars. The InSight’s mission is to study the deep interior of the Red Planet and report back with stunning images and findings in preparation for possible astronaut landings in the future.
While Mars has captured the imaginations of sci-fi enthusiasts for centuries, the actuality of living on the desolate planet is still far in the future. In the meantime, we probed around on our very own Earth to seek out 12 futuristic, space-inspired homes that look as though they might have been designed and built in a galaxy far, far away.
1. MARS Case Prototype
Beijing based OPEN Architecture teamed up with Chinese electronics giant Xiaomi to create MARS Case, a housing prototype that would allow humans to overcome the challenges of living in a punishing, Martian environment.
Designed by Finnish architect Seppo Mäntylä and manufactured by Finnish log home maker Polar Life Haus, Wave House’s aerodynamic, spaceship-like exteriors are constructed from solid wood, glass, and steel.
