BIG has partnered up with ICON, a developer of advanced construction technologies, and with SEArch+ (Space Exploration Architecture) to imagine humanity’s home in another world. Working with NASA, the collaboration seeks to develop a “space-based construction system that could support future exploration of the Moon”. Teaming up with ICON, developer of advanced construction technologies that advance humanity including robotics, software, and building materials, and SEArch+, a startup developing human supporting design concepts for space exploration, BIG-Bjarke Ingels Group will be in charge of designing the Project Olympus. With the Moon being the first off-Earth site for sustainable surface exploration, through the Artemis program, the venture, funded by NASA, aims to generate the first construction system to support future exploration of this satellite.
