Although for now planet Earth is our only home, we can already see the first images showing what the first city on the moon would look like. This futuristic habitat called ‘Moon Village’ will be the first permanent human settlement on our beautiful satellite.
Renowned architectural firm Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM) has worked on this challenging design; which will be submitted for approval by experts from the European Space Agency (ESA).
The architects were in charge of sharing these images that show the appearance of Moon Village, which would begin to be built after the approval of ESA.
The design of this lunar village was inspired by the inflatable BEAM module currently connected to the International Space Station, and is a semi-inflatable shell structure capable of keeping a crew of up to four alive and comfortable for about 300 days.
According to the SOM leader, a lot of thought was put into the human experience for this design, “in terms of lighting conditions and flexible architecture that can be reconfigured as needed.”

If not to inhabit it, then why build a city on the Moon?
These habitable structures on the Moon are planned to be home to the first astronauts to colonize the Earth’s natural satellite to subsequently go further and further.
NASA intends to send a woman and a man to the Moon in 2024. Part of that mission involves the creation of this sustainable colony, where engineers learn how to use lunar resources. This is why they require a place to settle; and at some point take off to Mars.

The most desirable real estate in the Solar System
The site where the lunar village would be built is the edge of Shackleton Crater next to the lunar South Pole. This place has been described as ‘the most desirable real estate in the Solar System’.
This is because this location avoids extreme temperatures, in addition to offering continuous sunlight, an incredible view towards Earth and access to water ice deposits.
