During the fourth stage of the competition, participants had to create fully-designed virtual
First place was taken by SEArch + / Apis Cor from New York. Her project looks like a complex of twisted towers with a large number of windows, which are penetrated by sunlight.
The team received $ 34 thousand to refine the concept and print the layout of the building.
Second place and $ 33.4 thousand got the Team Zoperhous from Arkansas. Engineers have proposed a method for printing their buildings with an autonomous rover, which will arrive on the Red Planet before people and create buildings for them.
The project is a complex of several residential modules that are united by a single system of corridors.
In third place with a prize of $ 32.6 is the Mars Incubator team from Connecticut.
The researchers created a deployable module with residential areas and a greenhouse for growing plants.
The last stage of the competition will be held on May 14 - teams will present small-scale 3D-printed models of their structures.
