Workshop Description

Before humans go to space, we must ask why we are there. We have to design the mission, the timeline, the circumstances, and describe the world surrounding us. In this workshop, we will together define the mission and the necessary programmatic human spaces and relationship between them, before finally each having the opportunity to imagine a possible resultant habitat concept design.

Visual Voice Lab is creating an eBook featuring artworks and texts created during the Visual Voice Summer Workshop Series. Participants of the Designing New Worlds workshop are invited to submit the artwork they created during this workshop for inclusion in the eBook.
