An idea envisioning a Martian habitat for a group of researchers. Nomitnated entry for a Architectural design competition for a research facility. This research facility should be able to provide a home for 5 scientist to conduct experimentation on Martian soil. Idea based competition. Umbra symbolizes the original intent of an umbrella by protecting the traveler from harmful environments. The compact neumatic structure is brought to mars where the folded structure opens and is filled with air generated on site. Thereon the dome is covered with Martian ice to create additional natural thermal insulation and protect from harmful radiations.
