LUNAR RESORT Sited at the lunar south pole, with a horizon of near perpetual sunlight and proximity to ice water, the lunar resort is comprised of inflatable polyhedron modules that can be transported by space rocket, assembled onsite and reinforced with protective shells of rover printed, radiated regolith. The resort is organized as a gathering of soft volumes of varying sizes and undulating orientations that reflect programmatic uses while creating a porous geometry that allows both sunlight and views to permeate the structure. The volumes lightly intersect with one another leading to a collection of spaces for lunar exploration, leisure and sleeping.

PAR is an idea-driven office, committed to intellectual and artistic rigor and recognized for architectural innovation. Comprised of a collective team working on projects ranging in scale from housing and interiors to large complex building schemes, PAR approaches each project with a fresh perspective, believing that each design arises from conditions particular to the site and program. Founded in 2003, PAR is led by partners Jennifer Marmon and Angus Goble with offices in Los Angeles and New York. Recent projects include housing in Los Angeles, the Ibid. Galleries in LA and London, private houses in Los Angeles, several international competitions and an upcoming exhibition at the Venice Biennale. 

 

PAR has received numerous awards and honors, including an International Architecture Award in 2014, American Institute of Architects Honor Award in 2013 and an American Architecture Award in 2013. In 2014, PAR received the Presidential Emerging Practice Award from the American Institute of Architects Los Angeles. The work of PAR has been featured in exhibitions at the US National Building Museum, the New York Center for Architecture, the European Center for Architecture, the Buenos Aires Architecture Biennale and the Istanbul Architecture Biennale and international publications such as DAMDI, ArchitectureConcept, Future Arquitecturas and MARK.
