The Vertical Forest on Mars is one of the hypotheses developed by SBA China along with the Tongji University’s Future City Lab to imagine Shanghai in 2117.
Thus was born the idea – so far in the form of vision – of a colony of Shanghai on the Red Planet. A “New Shanghai” that could be born thanks to the rooting on Mars’s surface of real “eco-systemic seeds” (which would travel through an interplanetary space station) within which to create an atmosphere and a favorable climate for plants and human life.
The “Vertical Forest Seeds on Mars” will be presented at the entrance of the great SUSAS 2017 exhibition, opening on October 15th in Minsheng Port in Shanghai.
The edition 2017 of Shanghai Urban Space and Art Season is curated by Stefano Boeri with Li Xiangning, dean of School of Architecture and Urban Planning of Tongji University, and Fang Zhenning, contemporary independent artist, international critic.
