Welcome to SpaceArchitect.org

by Space Architecture Technical Committee AIAA

SpaceArchitect.org provides an inclusive global network that promotes research and dialogue about human living in space: Space Architecture. SpaceArchitect.org maintains a bibliography and open archive of space-architecture papers and articles here; maintains the online brochure “How to become a Space Architect?“, a first-line FAQ for those interested in the field; and organizes periodic space architecture symposia to bring students and enthusiasts together with professionals. Stay current and like us on Facebook.

SATC (Space Architecture Technical Committee) is a professional organization. Comprising an international network of professionals, it is one of many AIAA (American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics) technical committees. It promotes development of the professional field of space architecture, including practice standards and other interfaces between aerospace engineering, architecture and industrial design disciplines. Members are formally nominated and accepted, and must be current members of the AIAA.

SpaceArchitect.org and SATC partner each year to organize sessions about space architecture at three major professional conferences:

Space Architecture is the theory and practice of designing and building inhabited environments in outer space (it encompasses architectural design of living and working environments in space related facilities, habitats, and vehicles). These environments include, but are not limited to: space vehicles, stations, habitats and lunar, planetary bases and infrastructures; and earth based control, experiment, launch, logistics, payload, simulation and test facilities. Earth analogs to space applications may include Antarctic, airborne, desert, high altitude, underground, undersea environments and closed ecological systems. Designing these forms of architecture presents a particular challenge to ensure and support safety, sustainability, habitability, reliability, and crew efficiency, productivity and comfort in the context of extreme environments.

(For a more detailed set of definitions and guiding principles about space architecture please refer to the “Millennium Charter manifesto” on the spacearchitect.org website.)

Whether you are an architect or industrial designer working in aerospace and seeking information, a student looking for inspiration and ideas or someone just wanting to find out more about the activities of SpaceArchitect.org or the SATC, we invite you to explore this website. You are welcome to contact us with any questions.

Through mistakes we learn ..

Can you share a story about the funniest mistake you made when you were first starting? Can you tell us what lesson you learned from that?

For one of my first space architecture designs, I misread the scale and ended up with a model four times the size it should have been. It took my team and me the whole night to make, but I kept assuring everyone that this was the required size. I only realized my mistake when we were finally done. In the end, the incident showed me how important it is to work within a good team — while I was mortified that we had to start all over again, everyone in my team managed to laugh it off and pitch in to fix the mistake in time.

... Spaceflight is regarded as an inherently dangerous activity. While some hazards of spaceflight and the space environment – like G-forces, radiation, vibration and microgravity – are well documented, many risks remain unknown. The scope of physiological risks spans pre-flight, in-flight, and post-flight operations and activities. ...
