My project draws on the tradition of Japanese Metabolism in Architecture, particularly Tange’s Tokyo Masterplan and Kurokawa’s Star City concept.

We are a far from a villa on the moon in our earthly sense of this word. However, we can now build in off-Earth conditions either using 3D printing or constructing from replaceable, transportable elements from Earth. The second idea is in alignment with the principles of metabolism. The existing prototype of Bigelow modules for the ISS has determined that on other planets, we will most likely live in inflatable bubbles. Blocks, folded during transportation according to the origami principle, are transported to pre-erected columns, which comprises two layers: a ladder for access to the bottom, and a bioreactor around. In the initial phase, the bioreactor is filled with air (bottom) and hydrogen (top).

At first, hydrogen fills the space between the walls, creating a shield against radiation. Finally, the bubble is inflated by the air coming in. The bioreactor within the column is now empty and ready to receive and process waste products. If the module becomes worn out for any reason, it can be undocked, deflated, and jettisoned. Then, according to the described mechanism, it can be replaced.
