SICSA: NOVUM: A Unified Architecture for Extreme Environments

Project ‘Novum’ is a comprehensive study of the steps required for humans to most efficiently transform a feral site into a habitable base. This project utilizes current technology and in-use Earth based industrial infrastructures for the construction of the modules. Through this, the project’s design is kept from being pushed the realm of science fiction. Focused on the development of a modular system of augmentable elements, ‘Novum’ creates a Unified Architecture for the Extreme Environments of Earth, the Moon, Mars, and beyond. The project’s end focus is a design in which any realistic site across the known universe can be blanketed with an expanding and evolving habitable environment.
