Lucy McRae film explores how design could prepare humans for outer space

Lucy McRae’s Institute of Isolation short film is a fictional examination of the ways travellers to outer space could use architecture and design to train their bodies for the challenge.

McRae, a previous Dezeen collaborator, filmed in several locations including Ricardo Bofill’s concrete La Fabrica house in Barcelona and Kew Gardens’ treetop walkway.

The self-described science fiction artist also visited an anechoic chamber – a room designed to absorb sound – and a surgical clinic in Graz.
