Nine Visions of MOONTOPIA

Showcasing the Winners of Eleven's Award-Winning Competition on Lunar Architecture

 

"Moontopia is Eleven’s first competition based on the Moon: the first in a series of challenges on the subject of Space-Architecture, a contemporary topic which is increasingly gaining attention as a design field to watch. In a space of a few years, this niche is quickly establishing itself as an area of design bound to become hot-property in the perhaps not so far future; shifting steadily from the realm of sci-fi to a very foreseeable reality. Whereas a few years ago the idea of humans actually exploring planets seemed like a mere dream, today talks of mankind becoming an inter-planetary species is seen as a feasible proposition." (Link)


Quote of the day

Winning a competition in architecture is a ticket to oblivion. It's just an idea. Ninety-nine per cent never get built
