The LUNARK Habitat Was Made For Life On The Lunar Surface

With humanity pushing toward the next frontier, our species’ longing for a life among the stars seems to be closer than ever. By 2024, our planet will have sent the first citizen spacecraft to the moon (and possibly beyond), reigning in an entirely new era for mankind. But what does colonization entail? SAGA Space Architects’ LUNARK moon habitat looks to reveal the answer.

The LUNARK habitat was conceptualized by Sebastian Aristotelis and Karl-Johan Sørensen — Danish architecture students who went on to create the esteemed SAGA Space firm. Over a three month span, both Aristotelis and Sørensen will live in Greenland’s most remote regions, utilizing the spherical living space you see here. To battle the harsh inhibitors of an “alien” environment, the LUNARK embodies a Dynamic Circadian Light System (to mimic natural day/night cycles), solar panel skin (for energy generation), and a modular structure that can be transported, built, and reformatted with ease. To satiate humanity’s desire for nature, a biology-based life support system has been devised, giving the sphere’s inhabitants a taste of home. The project, which hopes to measure the stresses, impediments, and capabilities of those living in the lifeless expanse, is set to take place in April of 2020.
