Gordon Woodcock Award 2020

The AIAA Space Architecture Technical Committee is proud to announce the recipient for first Gordon Woodcock Award for professional excellence in Space Architecture is Dr. A. Scott Howe.

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.

Lunar and Mars projects open space architecture opportunities
By BARBARA IMHOF, THEODORE W. HALL AND MARIA JOÃO DURÃO
Contributor: Zachary Taylor

December 2020

A new generation of space architects seized opportunities to design habitable flight hardware for lunar exploration and development. …
…Space architecture has not only become an integral part of space mission technical design but has also entered public consciousness as an exciting new field of work and career choice. This was demonstrated by the popular “Moving to Mars” exhibit at the Design Museum in London, which closed in February. During its six-month run, 80,000 people visited the show in person, and over 60 million people accessed online and print coverage. The exhibit featured immersive environments and numerous objects, including contributions from NASA, ESA and SpaceX. The London-based architecture firm Hassell contributed a full-scale concept of a Mars habitat. There were also a range of scale models, a video and technical drawings that explore how scientists and engineers might bring a human perspective to life on Mars. The Swedish National Museum of Science and Technology in Stockholm announced in April that the exhibit would open there in December.

… The ethical considerations of stewardship will be much more extreme when humans venture on to deep space. The most important unanswered philosophical and scientific questions are: Are we alone? And is there intelligent life elsewhere in the universe? Those who believe life in the universe is common expect to find existing or fossilized life on Mars.
