This five drawings series is a playful architectural exploration of the idea of future human settlements on Mars.

These were created on vintage paper, using ink and markers, as well as small digital touchups. Fascinated with the concept of starting a civilization on a different planet with the knowledge we already have, I've tried to imagine a retro-future of how towns might look in the new environment.

The buildings are inspired by traditional NeoRomanian architecture with added technology debris. The hypothetical settlements are based on the premise of a more accessible future environment of the Red Planet and a better relation to Earth (such as shorter travel time between the two and a more welcoming Martian atmosphere).

This series was inspired by the book 'The Martian' by Andy Weir.
