Mars colony apartment block

British The Sun has published an article what the human residences on Mars could look like by 2050 with architects and scientists prototyping several possible types of homes for would-be Martian colonists.

Martian base concept by Janek Kozicki & Joanna Kozicka

Mars colonization
Polish engineers/architects Janek Kozicki & Joanna Kozicka has long been working for an architectural design proposal for a Martian base after NASA (or SpaceX) will land humans on Mars for the 1st time. They call it a stage 2 and stage 3 Martian bases (stage 1 - 1st landing base; stage 2 - a small permanent Martian base; stage 3 - small Martian settlement; stage 4 - Martian cities).
