This paper presents the work done by architecture students at the Institute for Architecture and Product Design at the University of Technology in Munich. The design studio based its studies on the M.A.R.S Mars Arctic Research Station on Devon Island by the Mars Society and the „Tuna Can“-Concept of the Mars Reference Mission by NASA. Main subjects of investigation were the greenhouse, the entrance/airlock situation, the work level and the living level. On the living level studies for the kitchen, hygiene facilities and the Crew Quarters have been done. The paper will explain the underlying design ideas and the students work will be illustrated by many drawings and model photographs.
