Mars Case is a minimal housing prototype questioning the very essence of modern living. On Mars, the project’s hypothetical starting point, we cannot rely on natural resources, as we have done for so long on Earth. Recycling air, water, food, and even waste will no longer be a choice, but a necessity. Reducing the consumption and materialism of our former lifestyles will be the only way we survive. Is this what we should define as the ideal house of the future? Designed by OPEN Architecture, MARS Case seamlessly merges technology, product design, and architecture, integrating domestic appliances into one synthesized product — The Home. In an era marked by consumption and environmental crisis, the project thoughtfully pushes us to re-evaluate our definition of an ideal house, ultimately offering powerful implications for contemporary as well as future living.
