3.6.3. Construction Staging
The following figures show the evolution of the growing Mars community in terms of people. Gen II will increase its population by adding new rings to existing city. Some bigger constructions will become milestones for the city development and will provide social reference points.
Because of the different functions, the density in the different parts of the city is very variable. The industrial areas are less dense areas both in construction acreage and population, while the residential areas are very dense. In Gen II new types of rings will be developed and some of them will be built with fulfilling structures that will increase the density even more.
