I would like to know what would be the best material to use if you were going to build a artificial habitat on the planet Venus. The material could be as expense as you think and please do not limit your imagination.

Your project sounds like a very good one for stimulating YOUR imagination. Why do not you start out by writing down everything that you can find out about conditions on Venus?

Conditions on Venus :

Temperature 500 degrees celsius.
Pressure: At least 100 times that on Earth ( atmospheric pressure).
