Designing for Earth by Living in Space

Space Architecture Workshop

Held on June 12 thJune 16th in Lugano, Switzerland

Learning from Space to design a more sustainable World

In collaboration with internationally renowned experts, the second edition of the Space Architecture Workshop aimed to transfer the know-how from the space field to create better designs and systems for earth.

Participants from 15 countries around the world designed projects following this approach.

The impact of knowledge transfer from space interprets space environments as analogous to modern technology-dense cities.

Design, ideas, and technologies for space can immediately impact the development of cities and homes on earth.

We must consider a new relationship between humans, their habitats, transport methods, and the environment.

To achieve the goal of life in space, new technologies and approaches to design are being developed with zero-waste philosophy and full recycling as a paradigm.
