other space odysseys presents three approaches to the idea of an adventurous journey that started 40 years ago after the 1969 moon landing. featuring the work of architects greg LYNN, michael MALTZAN, and alessandro POLI, other space odysseys comes at a time when space exploration is the subject of renewed enthusiasm, but also of debate which questions its justification. scientific expeditions, satellite launches, and the emergence of space tourism are pushing us to reconsider our relationship with the planet. for these architects, space has provided not only a rich context for experimentation, but also an extreme condition in which to test new ideas for life on earth.
