The journey to the Red Planet has become one of the great challenges of our time. Through immersive recreations, new commissions and collaborations with contemporary designers, discover how every detail in this extraordinary endeavour must be designed. Getting humans to Mars has become one of the great projects of our time. Unlike the Moon landings of the last space race, however, this ambition is not purely symbolic. Mars holds the potential of human settlement and the promise of life after Earth. Some of the world’s greatest entrepreneurs, architects and engineers are dedicating themselves to conquering the next frontier.    This exhibition explores the crucial role that design will play in this collective endeavour. From the capsules that need to keep dozens of passengers in harmony over a nine-month journey, to the habitats they will live in on Mars, and the terraforming of the landscape; every detail needs to be designed. The exhibition explores the appeal of Mars and reveal a likely roadmap for the first manned missions. As well as technical and practical solutions, the exhibition examines how design can address some of the more social and anthropological aspects of what it means to become a star-faring, multiplanetary species. The exhibition features immersive environments, about 200 objects including contributions from NASA, the European Space Agency and SpaceX; NASA’s 3D-Printed Mars Habitat Challenge winners, AI SpaceFactory; robotic builders by Foster & Partners; the first sustainable urban design for Mars, Mars City Design; the first spacesuit designed for the Mars surface; Christopher Raeburn’s new fashion collection inspired by the red planet and much more.
