UAE's Mars Science City has museum with 3D printed sand walls

BIG will design massive Mars simulation city in the United Arab Emirates

Known for his idea that a building should be built to fit in its environment, Ingles' plan is for four geodesic domes that include space for a team to live and work there for up to a year.

Elon Musk has not even sent rockets to Mars yet and the United Arab Emirates is already preparing for the eventual colonization of the red planet. It will be named the Martian Scientific City and will consist of a science museum section created to inspire visitors and a scientific testing section.

"We are seeking a better life and education as well as a stronger economy and the internationally most sophisticated infrastructure for generations to come", said His Highness Shaikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.

Now the government of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) has revealed a plan to build a simulated Martian city in Dubai.

The 100 year plan, the Mars 2117 Project, was announced in February this year.

The site will encompass laboratories for food, energy and water - as well as agricultural testing and studies about future food security on Earth.

The campus will also contain a museum dedicated to humanity's greatest achievements in space exploration. According to The National, the Mars Scientific City, as a specialist research city, could offer a first step towards Mars 2117 as scientists delve into how humans might survive in Mars' harsh environment. That amount might seem small, but the city itself will only cover about 1.9 million square feet, which is quite a bit smaller than many huge urban areas. As for its architectural components, walls will be 3D-printed using sand from the Emirati desert. "We believe in the potential of space exploration, and in collaborating with global partners and leaders in order to harness the findings of this research and movement that seeks to meet people's needs and improve quality of life on earth".

Ingels, the founder of Danish firm BIG, will work on the AED 500 million (£101 million) project with a team of Emirati scientists, engineers and designers led by the Mohammed bin Rashid Space Centre and the Dubai Municipality.
