The book presents, through different odysseys, three responses to the idea of an adventurous journey in space and a future based on technology.
After the 1969 lunar mission, architect Alessandro Poli with Superstudio considered it critical to imagine our environment as connected to the new reality of outer space. Their extensive research led to "architettura interplanetaria", a highway to connect the earth and moon as well as "architettura materiale", which focuses on the return to earth.
Architect Michael Maltzan is designing the Jet Propulsion Laboratory Administration Building for NASA that challenges existing models for housing scientific research, and proposes a new type of physical environment to facilitate a collaborative research process.
Architect Greg Lynn has developed several investigations that imagine new worlds outside our atmosphere and initiated research and design for new terminals on both the earth and the moon, which will connect travelers between these two places.
