Sophomore students of İzmir University of Economics, Department of Architecture will begin to 2016-2017 Spring semester with a workshop. In this two-week workshop, the students’ mission is to design a biomimetic structural organism that will function as a habitat for the first colonizers on Mars. The habitable space(s) should be formed in accordance with the geographical and climatological conditions of Mars, which are quite different from those of Earth. In this context, modes and durations of basic human needs such as eating and sleeping should also be re-thought. In scope of the workshop Prof. Dr. Serdar Bayari from Hacettepe University, Department of Geological Engineering will give a lecture entitled “Geology, Geography, and Climate of Mars: An Introduction”.
