Our Mission

“Mars City Design is the thought leadership, toward the human aspects of sustainable living on Mars, where it is not survivability, but its actual human cultural living” – Slade Gardner, Aerospace & Space Advanced Manufacturing Expert.

“Mars City Design – cultivates innovative designs with aerospace engineering to develop technological solutions that will power the first city on Mars.” – Dean Little, Ares Astronautics

“Mars City Design is the next step toward a living solution on Mars, which will benefit Earth immediately”. – Vera Mulyani , Founder & CEO of Mars City Design

The Story

Mars City Design was born from the vision of Vera Mulyani, who always dreamt of becoming an architect of Mars. Founded in Silicon Beach in Los Angeles, California, Mars City Design has become the action step to realizing not just the exploration of Mars, but making Mars a second home for humans.

Mulyani explains, “It is not enough to just travel to Mars and survive, now we must develop a way in which we can sustainably live and love on Mars. It is essential that we call on a new generation of thinkers and innovators to make this a reality.”

The mission

Mars City Design’s mission is to design the blueprint for sustainable cities on Mars.

The collaboration

Mars City Design is a human movement, comprised of not only scientists and engineers, but also, experts from the vast landscape of artistic vocations.

The work

Individuals and companies who aim to pioneer the development of human necessities, are encouraged to adapt their designs to the Martian condition. Mars City Design serves as a collaborative platform to make this development possible.

Mulyani has united a team of creative visionaries from around the world who represent what Mars City Design is—the unity of multiple expertise to realize the vision of a life on Mars. These experts will be responsible for analyzing Mars City Design competition submissions from around the globe.

Once chosen, the three finalists will have the opportunity to develop their ideas more fully. The process will be documented exposing the human story behind each team and their design allowing the world to bear witness to the first tangible steps to the realization of our future history.
