Founder & CEO at Humature
Anastasia Prosina is an aspirational futurist and practitioner in the nascent field of space architecture. To foster the development of space architecture, she founded Humature, a company that provides design services for aerospace companies helping to make space habitats second homes. In summer 2019, she joined MIT Media Lab’s Space Exploration Initiative to work on the completion of self-assembling space station Tessellated Electromagnetic Space Structures for the Exploration of Reconfigurable, Adaptive Environments (TESSERAE) with lightweight interior habitation structures. Earlier, she began to work with 4th Planet Logistics to deliver an Iceland-based Martian Analog Habitat that was commissioned by Mars Society. Anastasia Prosina and her teammates’ design on deployable habitat won the People’s Choice prize in the Mastopia international competition. Ms. Prosina has a few publications and co-author with Ariel Ekblaw, the Director of MIT Media Lab’s Space Exploration Initiative, Dava Newman, a former Deputy Administrator of NASA, and Joseph Paradiso, the Director of MIT Media Lab’s Responsive Environments Group. Anastasia holds an MS in Space Architecture from the University of Houston, the only world’s program on designing space habitats, and a BS in Urban Planning from Novosibirsk State University of Architecture, Design, and Arts.
