29 September 2013: Base on Mars by Joanna Kozicka: a PhD thesis "Architectural problems of a Martian base design as a habitat in extreme conditions" - first translation draft

Translation of PhD thesis about practical architectural guidelines to design a Martian base is going on quite well. We are ready to publish a translation draft:

Joanna Kozicka - "Architectural problems of a Martian base design as a habitat in extreme conditions" (draft, 14 MB).

Below are links to original version in polish:
Joanna Kozicka - "Problemy architektoniczne bazy na Marsie jako habitatu w ekstremalnych warunkach" (lowres 6 MB)
Joanna Kozicka - "Problemy architektoniczne bazy na Marsie jako habitatu w ekstremalnych warunkach" (35 MB)

Currently about 50% is translated so far. We are planning to finish this translation by the end of year 2014. It is an expensive endeavour as it requires to pay a professional translator. Therefore we are asking for donations:

17 September 2011: Published a paper "Human Friendly Architectural Design for a small Martian Base"

I am very happy that our paper "Human Friendly Architectural Design for a small Martian Base" has just been accepted in "Advances in Space Research" journal. It features a revised version of Martian Base design. I will post more updates here, after it will be printed.

26 July 2010: Welcome COSPAR 2010 visitors

As I promised, here is the presentation and a poster that were presented on the COSPAR 2010 conference. Also a video is below.

First, is the presentation: "A Mars Outpost, building a prototype of a Martian Base in Poland, an Architectural Design Overview and progress report" by Dr eng. architect Janek Kozicki.
You can read a short abstract or look at the presentation:


Second is the poster: "Architectural concepts of martian bases built of domes, around greenhouses and into slopes - the human aspect and the technology" by Dr eng. architect Joanna Kozicka.
You can read a short abstract, or click on thumbnails to see the posters:

I'll also keep you updated about the papers that I'm going to submit to "Advances in Space Research".

26 July 2010: A Martian Base camera flyby


Many thanks to Konrad Mruk, for making this awesome flyby video around my base.

Some posters in English

Three of my thesis posters (shown below in polish) were translated into English, thanks to heroic effort of Joanna Jodlowska, a voluntary translator. Click to download the posters:
Poster 9: "Zones of Control"
Poster 10: "Central Module and Ground Plan"
Poster 11: "Section drawings and construction details"
" " "

Description in english, but not yeat proofread!

Thanks to heroic effort of Mateusz Jozefowicz, a director of Polish Mars Society and Przemyslaw Zalewski (also from MSP) my thesis has been translated into English. But please bear in mind a warning: this text may contain mistakes, because I haven't done a proofread on this translation.

Base on Mars by Janek Kozicki

Welcome COSPAR 2008 visitors (23 July 2008)
As I promised, here is the poster that was presented on the COSPAR 2008 conference, you can download a full-sized poster (very big) or a small version.

-Download a one page abstract.
- See the presentation about it: "A Mars Outpost, the architectural design for a Polish Hab Project".

Thank you for your interest. I plan to translate my website into english and update it, as it's really old now. I'll also keep you updated about the paper I'm going to submit to "Advances in Space Research" with this Martian Base design.

Oh, right, people ask about that far more often that I expected. So here's the official answer - you are totally free to use all those pictures anywhere you want (even sell a calendar with those graphics and design plans), but you MUST attribute the author properly. Me that is: Janek Kozicki.



Base on Mars

Description (in polish)


Design description in polish language

That was my master thesis on Architecture faculty. (defended on 23 9 2004.).

Pictures

Those are the posters that I used to defend my master thesis in architecture. At my university, to defend a master thesis you not only need to make an architecturally correct design, you also must prove yourself to be good at art and graphics, by making graphically appealing posters ;)

They are in polish language however, so just have a look at those nice renders that I made with blender. The english version poster was presented on COSPAR and is shown above.
