What does it mean to build a habitat for a place other than Earth? The most basic elements on Earth such as air, stable temperature, water and food are not available, and must therefore be considered in the design of a lunar base.
Since 2018, SAGA Space Architects has been working on the development of the lunar habitat, LUNARK. In 2020, LUNARK was tested during a nearly 100-day mission in North Greenland, where space architects Sebastian Aristotelis and Karl-Johan Sørensen placed the habitat to live there.
In collaboration with researchers, the project has investigated the psychological effects associated with isolation. After the test mission, the habitat was left in North Greenland. In the summer of 2021, when conditions were less harsh, the habitat was brought home, repaired, and subsequently exhibited in DAC in 2022.
Are you curious about the space experiment?
While you wait for the exhibition, you can watch the documentary series about Sebastian and Karl-Johan’s 60 days in the lunar habitat on DRTV (in Danish).
