Virtual Speaker Event
Jun 2 @ 12:00 pm – Jun 7 @ 12:45 pm
The Alumni Association is featuring From Earth to Mars and Back: Digital Design and Fabrication of Homes for Low-income People to be presented by Dr. Jose Duarte on Tuesday, June 2nd from 12PM to 12:40PM on Zoom.


The World is experiencing significant growth in population and fast urbanization at such a scale that we will need to build over the next twenty years as many houses as we have built in the past two thousand years. The talk will describe how innovative design and construction technologies developed to overcome this situation on Earth were used to design a habitat to support the human exploration of Mars. It will also show how the lessons learnt from this Martian effort may impact the way we design and build cities on Earth, making them more resilient, including to pandemic threats like COVID-19.
