Images show plans for city on Mars to be built in 2054 with 250,000 living there

Plans for human life on Mars have been revealed in stunning images created by a global architect firm.

Pictures of the red planet's projected capital city, Nüwa, show it with homes, offices, and green spaces based on scientific research from The Mars Society and the SONet network.

With sustainability at the heart of Nüwa, plans drawn up by architecture studio ABIBOO, illustrate it built vertically instead of horizontally into the side of a cliff.

The idea is that it would cut down on the effect of atmospheric pressure and radiation, the latter of which is deadly without shelter, Daily Mail reports.

Plans suggest Nüwa – named after a mythological Chinese goddess – will be one of five cities at Tempe Mensa on Mars.

Instead of rocketing resources from Earth to Mars, ABIBOO wants to use the carbon dioxide and water available on the foreign planet's surface to help create steel and more building materials.

Alfredo Muñoz, founder of ABIBOO, told Euronews: "We had to do a lot of analysis based on computing and working with the scientists to try to understand what are the circumstances that we will face."

The incredible designs might have been prepared for 2021 but construction on Mars would not be expected to begin until 2054, with the first settlers moving in almost 50 years later.

Nüwa's population would be 250,000 with most construction lined up as "Macro-buildings" inside excavated rock of the cliff.

Spectacular "Green-Domes" will either act as parks for the residents or as a place to try to grow experimental vegetation with most food coming from the cultivation of the crops set to make up around half of people's diets.

Plans also accommodate sport and leisure with purpose built facilities designed to cover all aspects of life.
