While humanity’s dream of living on Mars is still several decades away, that doesn’t mean we can’t start planning for our eventual solar system expansion now. And that’s exactly what ABIBOO Studio has done with their Nüwa Martian city concept.

Nüwa city is strikingly stylish and attractive, but it’s far more than just a pretty face. Conceived by ABIBOO and developed by the SONet Network as part of a competition organized by The Mars Society, Nüwa is designed to be sustainable while withstanding the harsh conditions of the Red Planet. It’s structured as a vertical city on the side of a cliff where it can avoid harmful radiation from the sun while still gaining access to indirect sunlight. The city’s design is modular, with separate modules for living and working and all modules containing green spaces, art-dedicated areas, and “Snow-domes” that help dissipate heat and clean the air. Nüwa is the capital of a five-city settlement that ABIBOO and SONet have cooked up, with all five supporting a total of a million human inhabitants. Obviously, the project is speculative, but ABIBOO estimates that scientific progress could possibly lead to construction on such a project beginning in 2054.
