MOON CAPITAL EXHIBITION

If you are in the DC or Houston, TX areas be sure to check out the Moon Capital Exhibition.  Exhibitions are an important component of all SHIFTboston competitions because they help bring innovative designs and ideas to the public.

“The moon is a vast wasteland. Will we inhabit it? Well, look at Las Vegas.”

Dr. Jeffrey Hoffman, former astronaut professor MIT

The future of space exploration is the subject of intense debate. Meanwhile, scientific expeditions and the development of space tourism are pushing us to reconsider our relationship with our own planet Earth.

With this in mind, architects and designers in the MOON CAPITAL Competition saw the moon as a rich context for experimentation on which to explore new concepts for life on earth. We invite you to view an exhibtion
of some of these outstanding visions from around the world.
