With the fervent belief that needs is one of the dominant factors in determining & exploring new typologies in architecture; we propose a visitor's center's, Penultima on our red neighbor. With humanity's recent attempts to venture into the dark abyss of outer space, the red planet has always beckoned us as a civilization; a starting point in becoming a multi-planetary species. With cursory knowledge of supply & demand, the idea was to design a visitor center welcoming people from Earth. The center will double as a docking station for the spaceships/ landers & temporary lodging facility until they wander off to explore the planet.
