Resources for research
Resources for research is a non-profit organisation registered in the state of California, USA. It exists to provide an inclusive network for those interested in space architecture around the world. It maintains an information resource website to promote and facilitate international research in the field of space architecture.

The website is operated by the Space Architecture Technical Committee (SATC). The SATC is the first formal organization of space architects and industrial designers in the world. It is a longstanding and highly international committee of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA). The SATC organizes space architecture sessions at international space conferences, advises on the skills required to work in the space architecture field, promotes research on space architecture topics, assists researchers, industry experts and students with space architecture projects and provides liaison between aerospace engineering, architecture and industrial design disciplines.

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 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 or the SATC, we invite you to explore this website. You are welcome to contact us with any questions.
