Big-scale projects that answer to technological challenges such as spaceports or space stations (ISS) will co-exist in the exhibition with small-scale projects and concepts, both of them interesting and complex at the same time. The visitor will be able to understand the relationship between terrestrial approaches and some common points with the most complex type of technological habitats: those located in 'Space', the most extreme environment known to humankind.
We will also present examples of high performance architecture down on Earth, which also work towards this approach… More ‘terrestrial’ architectural studios will join the exhibition to show their work among the one developed by space agencies and private companies in the sector of aerospace, defense and construction: from long term to short term habitats, form deserts and Arctic platforms to low Earth orbits... From deep sea facilities to deep space missions in the solar systems and beyond... In essence: MANKIND'S NEW TECHNOLOGICAL HABITATS and showing some applied technologies from innovative companies.
