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.

Space Exploration Architecture is partnering with ICON and NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center to launch Project Olympus. ICON has engaged both SEArch+ and BIG - Bjarke Ingels Group for the project. ICON, developer of advanced construction technologies including robotics, software, and building materials, has begun research and development of a space-based construction system that could support future exploration of the Moon. Project Olympus aspires to introduce a single construction system for the development of Lunar surface infrastructure and eventually habitats.
