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.
