POI – The Peckham Outer-Space Initiative is at the forefront of search & development, and tasks itself with the utilisation of space for not simply the preservation but evolution of the human species and its culture. A primary objective for POI is to develop and establish in-transit non-Earth living situations. These situations are proposed as solutions to current forms of planetary based society and living, and as such POI employs the manifesto/slogan: SHIPS NOT SHELTERS
A record of POI’s current ideas, thoughts and activities (to date) have been complied in the book SHIPS NOT SHELTERS. SnS is an introduction to POI’s exploits as well as serving as an internal and external brief for future dialogue, design and thinking.
