Yes, but abstract investigations are no less productive. Should we live on Mars? Absurd questions inspire absurd responses. Architects don’t make buildings, we envision the future and find ways to bring others along. Satire brings criticism, but can also open wormholes to new design thinking. Imaginative practice is practice for imagination. Stay sharp, the future is coming. This thesis engages in a new methodology to create collaborative, imaginative work around the idea of settlement on Mars. By parodying and restructuring the design process, using poetry as a tool and science fiction as an identity, this work intends to inject different perspectives into this exciting opportunity as it approaches reality, maintaining that design is improved when vision is replaced by conversation.
