The beauty with this entry is it could be positioned in any environment on any planet. Well designed units which prove to be extremely flexible. It remains to be see however if 3D printing and mineral extraction would subsequently replace the prefabrication era.

    Great modular composition, it leads to many compositions and variations. However the structure is “heavily” built, it seems there is a lot of material needed to construct the base. And a large payload means more energy for the rockets, more resources, large launch vehicles… And the wide openings (windows/connections) look exciting but technically extremely problematic. It’s a pity you didn’t look into inflatable/lightweight structures.

      Thank you for your interesting comment Morgan. Inflatable structure is a good idea, but I think in extreme conditions it would be better to make more firm and safe core. The whole structure might look heavy according to section, but actually it is a schematic section and the cell walls are not massive. The cells will have metal structure which is of course heavy, but I think it is necessary. The core itself consists of two outer and inner layers of a lighter material, e.g. aluminium. Bearing structures and thermal insulation are placed between these layers. The windows will have radiation protection layer.
