PROJECT INFORMATION:

Architects                               : AI space factory
Project                                    : TERA
Bookings                                : Indiegogo
Visualizations                         : AI space factory and plomp



AI space factory — the architects behind the NASA–award-winning mars habitat — is now launching ‘TERA’, a space-tech habitat designed for off-grid living on earth. designed to be a ‘B&B unlike any other’, ‘TERA’ will be a high-tech, luxe eco-home nestled in the woods of upstate new york with sweeping views of the Hudson River. ‘we realized the materials and technology we developed for long-term missions on mars had the potential to be leaps and bounds more sustainable than conventional construction on earth,’ said David Malott, AI spacefactory’s CEO and chief architect. ‘TERA will challenge everything we know about architecture and construction. it could transform the way we build on earth – maybe even save our planet.’

The property is now accepting limited pre-bookings for nightly stays starting march 2020 on Indiegogo.

Developed from the same designs and 3D printing technologies behind the AI spacefactory’s NASA-award-winning ‘MARSHA’ mars habitat, ‘TERA’ is designed to be minimally invasive to its surrounding environment. it can be broken down, recycled and re-printed elsewhere, without leaving any trace. the ‘multi-planetary architectural and technology design agency’ hopes to curb the massive footprint of conventional building practices that rely on energy-and waste-intensive materials. in its realization, AI space factory will use recyclable, biodegradable, plant-based materials tested by NASA, which have been found to be up to three times as strong as concrete.



‘TERA’ will be 3D printed on-site and retro-fitted with the most advanced technological and eco-friendly products, emphasizing the beauty of its natural environment. ‘astronauts often talk about gaining a profound appreciation of earth when they look back at our planet from space, but we shouldn’t have to leave our home in order to reach that realization,’explains sima shahverdi, AI space factory lead designer, ‘the entire experience of TERA – from the design to the off-grid lifestyle – was crafted with this in mind.’

The high-tech, luxe, green eco-home will be available on a nightly basis for those wanting a glimpse into the future of sustainable life on — and beyond — our earth.

The Museum of the Future is a unique incubator for futuristic innovations and design, currently under construction in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Opening in 2020, the Museum will become the world’s largest and most exciting way to discover tomorrow’s trends and opportunities.

















The museum’s motto, “See the future, create the future”, reflects a new approach to government innovation. Rather than just displaying exhibits or publishing reports, the new institution will use design, technology prototyping and foresight to create real examples of change. The Museum is the first of its kind and represents a leading example of entrepreneurial governments embracing change and creating futuristic visions for a better world.



Organized by the Dubai Future Foundation as part of the World Government Summit, the Museum focuses on shaping the future of robotics and artificial intelligence and their impact on human life. It also offers a unique interactive experience t…

10 STEPS TO BECOMING A SUCCESSFUL ARCHITECT

1. PERFECT YOUR PORTFOLIO
strong portfolio is and always will be your greatest ally throughout your career. From the initial steps along the path, tong wards land your first role, to later on when you’re competing for high profile tender – it’s invaluable. Your portfolio should be unique and should stand out from the thousands of portfolio developers, clients, and potential employers see on a daily basis. It should be presented as a work of art in itself, and it’s equally important to not share all of your work, only some highlights. Leave them wanting more. Show versatility in design, but across only four or five different project designs. And of course, make sure it always contains your very best work. 2. NETWORK AND CONNECT
Architecture, much like any number of sectors or industries, is as much about establishing and maintaining relationships as it is about talent and creativity. Meet as many people as you can, stay in touch with all the contacts you make. Arrange lunches, send …

INSPIRATION:  LOTUS FLOWER Observing Hindu architecture, you can see that despite the external difference between the various temples, they all show meaningful and sacred symbols common to all of India’s religions. These are symbols which have emerged in other countries and religions. One of these symbols is the sacred flower of the Indians: the lotus flower.Fariborz Sahba developed the project for the temple inspired conceptually by this flower which symbolises purity and cleanliness in Hindu tradition.     DESIGN CHALLENGES: Generation of formEngineering ChallengeClimatic ChallengeBaha'i FaithFinancial restrictionGENERATION OF FORM
