During the 2012 spring term students in the Master of Architecture program realized their vision of a future research base on the Moon. This topic was new in every respect to all students. Lunar conditions are completely different to those on Earth, from a physical point of view (gravity, radiation, atmosphere, nbsp]micrometeorites, etc.) as well as from a social and psychological point of view (limited space, microsocieties, isolation, etc.). Re-thinking design challenges through a change of perspective has been a critical part of this design studio.
