Vera Mulyani calls herself a “Marschitect.” She has a background in architecture, urban design and film-making, and is interested in ideas for building a city on Mars.

Mulyani is the founder and CEO of Mars City Design, a company that plans to build prototypes of those buildings in the Mojave Desert within the next few years. It’s also behind a competition soliciting designs for those buildings.
