Outer space and the creation of sustainable living and working environments
The “Working on the Moon” panel explores the presumptuous idea of venturing deeper into space and settling on distant planets. As paradoxical as it may sound, but to set forth into infinity apparently helps to achieve an understanding of how to deal with limited space and scarce resources.
With experts from space agencies NASA and ESA, we discuss topics between the poles of space escapism and usable results for the design of our living and working environments: How will the construction of extraterrestrial colonies affect economy, science, and society on earth? Which impulses are generated towards architecture, design, technology, energy and material cycles? And how does a new space age impact media and pop culture?
