The Kuala Lumpur Ar­chi­tec­ture Fes­ti­val 2019, or­gan­ised by Per­tubuhan Akitek Malaysia named The Mar­tian Pod by Khznh Stu­dio as the win­ner of the ‘First Colony on Mars: In­ter­na­tional Ideas Com­pe­ti­tion’. “The Com­pe­ti­tion aimed to get ar­chi­tects and de­sign­ers to think out­side the box, or in this case out­side planet earth. This is timely in light of cli­mate change and the need to start over on a clean slate, par­tic­u­larly by crit­i­cally adopt­ing sus­tain­able liv­ing. In space, we need to close the loop and learn to be self-suf­fi­cient with full re-use of all re­sources and zero waste,” said Di­rec­tor of KLAF2019, Ar. Dr Tan Loke Mun.
