A 3D printed ice shelter designed for Mars, which aims to rely on the red planet’s predicted liquid water and low temperatures, has won the first position in NASA’s Mars habitat design competition and bagged a cash prize of $ 25,000.

Team Space Exploration Architecture and Clouds Architecture Office won the award for their design, Mars Ice House.

NASA has awarded a total of $40,000 in the first stage of the 3-D Printed Habitat Challenge Design Competition.

The design competition challenged participants to develop architectural concepts that take advantage of the unique capabilities 3-D printing offers to imagine what habitats on Mars might look like using this technology and in-situ resources. More than 165 submissions were received and 30 highest-scoring entries were judged.
