Project Location: Melas Chasma, Mars.
Grow Mars focuses on large scale community planning with potential for modular expansion. Biological resource scarcity and the presence of diverse mineral deposits on-site led to the development of a framework of replicable Grow Mars Units. Development follows a flexible algorithm of land use and building adjacencies that satisfy basic needs and community comfort.

Proposed community expansion plan based on projected resource and infrastructure adjacencies.
Proposed tri-level modular building plans:
Living Quarters | Food Production | Lab & Tech
