  • Moon Seed
    boston MASSACHUSETTS

    LUNAR CRATER CULTURAL CENTER COMPETITION
    First place — $1200

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project:

    james LENG: MOON SEED is a speculative proposal that attempts to situate a Lunar Crater Cultural Center along a continuous timeline of human space development. This Lunar development is not the beginning, nor the final goal of humanity’s presence on the moon; it is merely a point-in-time of a perpetual, phased-project to expand human presence extra-terrestrially.

    LUNAR CRATER CULTURAL CENTER COMPETITION
    Third Place — $300

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project:

    amy DEDONATO: The Moon can be described as a ‘non-site’—a vacuous, untamed territory lacking limitation (gravity, vertical boundaries, atmosphere, temperature, edges, etc.) The project proposes a lunar city of culture that develops according to predetermined constraints. The outer wall of the urban complex serves as an infrastructural frame, one that maintains the cultural center’s artificial atmosphere, power supply, and transportation hubs. Growth of the cultural center develops inward along the infrastructural frame and its cross supply axes until its internal growth reaches maximum capacity.

    LUNAR CRATER CULTURAL CENTER COMPETITION
    Honorable Mention — $100

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    dave EDWARDS: The project explores the speculative notion from two directions first speculating on the cultural behaviour of such an enterprise, asking questions like who would like on the moon? What and why would you go there. And how would this change humanities perception on itself. Would living on the moon lead to new forms of spirituality, new social structures or would we export our current ways of being which would be exposed in a completely new context.

    LUNAR CRATER CULTURAL CENTER COMPETITION
    Honorable Mention — $100

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    gabriel a. HUERTA: The design of the Lunar Crater Cultural Center (LC3) is based on a vision that the proposed design is not an end product, but the starting point for an ever-evolving building on the lunar surface. By utilizing up and coming fabrication technologies like Counter Crafting, the LC3 would be a conglomeration of “3D printed” components. The technology would not only allow for minor modifications and refurbishment, but could potentially support the emergent expansion of the base building form to accommodate future programmatic needs.
