Structurally, zero gravity means that we do not have to contend with architecture’s greatest arch-nemesis, gravity. This opens up a new world of possibilities where we can deploy structures that no longer have to counteract/resist gravitational force. We would like to explore new forms of rapid inflatable prototyping. Most importantly, this prototype explores surfaces utilizing materials that would normally fail on Earth, yet flourish in zero gravity.
This year the MIT Media Lab’s City Science group had an opportunity to think of architecture at the scale of the body that was literally out of this world.
