The accompanying presentation for the recent AIAA Space Architecture Webinar can be found below.
The webinar course was prepared and conducted by SATC member Brand Griffin. It contains a vast amount of relevant information and guidance for anyone involved in any aspect of weightless space architecture or would like to gain an understanding of the importance of designing space habitats for human neutral body posture.
8 November 2018. 1300-1430 Eastern Time
A special educational webinar for anyone who would like to gain an understanding of the importance of designing space habitats for human neutral body posture.
SATC member Brand Griffin prepared and will conduct this web course. It contains a vast amount of relevant information and guidance for anyone involved in any aspect of weightless space architecture. AIAA members pay a special rate; AIAA student members get a huge discount. You can sign up for the webinar on the AIAA page link below:

A new Space Architecture Education book written by SATC members Sandra Häuplik-Meusburger & Olga Bannova.
Space Architecture Education for Engineers and Architects – Designing and Planning Beyond Earth
Space architecture as a discipline is relatively new, but it fills a gap between the engineering approach to design habitats and other space facilities for humans, and the complexity of human factors oriented design—including personal psychology, creativity, and non-work related activities. In order to successfully fill that gap, space architecture needs to be taught academically.
The book is structured around basic learning processes for the design of a space mission, structure or vehicle. The chapters on the design principles are related to the Technology Readiness levels and Habitation Readiness Levels – TRLs and HRLs and include examples, discussions, and tasks.
with Guest Chapters (in order of appearance):
Chris Welch on ‘The Essence of Interdisciplinarity’
Brand N. Griffin on ‘The Role of the Space Architect’
Brent Sherwood on ‘Space Architecture Education—Site, Program, and Meaning’
Marc M. Cohen on ‘Mockups 101: Technology Readiness Levels for Mockups and Simulators’
Madhu Thangavelu on ‘The Moon or Mars: Where might we settle first?’
Theodore W. Hall on ‘Artificial Gravity and Implications for Space Architecture’ Cesare Lobascio on ‘Environmental Control and Life Support Systems’
Haym Bennaroya and Leonard Bernold on ‘Engineering and Construction of LunarBases’
Kriss J. Kennedy on ‘The TransHab Project’

International Space Station: Architecture Beyond Earth is a new book written by Space Architect and former SATC member David Nixon. This book offers the first comprehensive account of the Station’s conception, design development and assembly in space. As a highly accessible chronicle of a complex piece of design and engineering, it is a book that will appeal to readers far beyond the space field.
