Exo-landscape exploration

First Happy Christmas, Happy Holidays.

A series of projects I found on David Garcia's new website MAP Architects. David Garcia is the editor of the little publication MAP that I presented several months ago.
These projects are part of the department of Extreme Environments and Future Landscapes at Lunds University. The Extreme Environments and Future Landscapes Master Course explores the role of the architect in a mutational environments. The Fall semester course 2012 consists of a three-week workshop, site visits, lectures, and one to one meeting with engineers, architects and astronauts at NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston. According to the website, the course addresses the exo-landscape of space, but not as astronauts. The aim is to develop a critical perspective of the traditional typology capable of adapting to a future of conditions.
Those with a strong interests in 'Landscape Futures', including exo-landscape exploration (Mars, etc.) will certainly appreciate these projects.
