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.

AIAA LA LV Space Architecture Gathering event 2020

August 22nd, 2020, 10 AM
Please join us and meet with and listen to the leaders and practitioners in Space Architecture. The theme will relate to human space activity in general and human lunar activity in particular, including but not limited to NASA's Artemis project and Artemis Accords.

The Artemis Lunar Program will offer new opportunities for advances in architecture, commercialization, design, engineering, exploration, habitation, ISRU, operations, and science at the Gateway Station, in cis-lunar space, on the lunar lander, on the surface of the Moon, and perhaps beneath the surface.

Moon-shot: Woman on the Moon
Solo Show by Helen Schell
Norfolk Street Arts, Sunderland is pleased to be presenting the work of Helen Schell. We set up our organisation with the core mission to promote regional artists giving them opportunities to show their cultural practices in the city where they work and live. We are collaborating with the artist and ‘Art Matters Now’ to produce our first ever virtual exhibition expanding work into new frontiers; it is only fitting that our organisation explores a new frontier with Helen Schell’s practice which unites art and space science.
Virtual Exhibition Tour - https://poly.google.com/view/bQBmXFplS4K


Dates: 15th July-15th August 2020
Opening Times: 10am-6pm (Open Wed-Fri)
At: Norfolk Street Gallery, 29, Norfolk Street, SR1 1EE, Sunderland
Open by appointment for individuals & small groups

‘The Human Spaceship – I believe art and science must collaborate for humanity to fully understand that we live in a space-faring society and are witnessing the most astounding change in ‘being-human’ through space exploration in the 21st century.’ Helen Schell.


NASA recently announced they are sending the first woman to the Moon in 2024. Helen Schell predicted this mission through her project ‘Moon-shot: Woman on the Moon’, which began in 2011. In 2019, her space themed art work won the Sir Arthur C Clarke Award for Outreach. The artworks on show include paintings, drawings and a Smart Materials costume which employ multiple optical illusions expressing altered gravity conditions. To develop ‘The Human Spaceship’ project she met lead scientists from NASA’s Human Spaceflight Program at Johnson Space Center (Artemis Mission), Rice Space Institute (guest artist), and Lunar & Planetary Institute in Houston, USA 2019.

…When Escamilla found out, something snapped. He was actually an unlikely vigilante. He was pudgy and wore glasses, and was considered quiet, even wimpy. But when he heard about the theft, he grabbed the base rifle and marched over to confront Porky. It was nearly 11 p.m., but the arctic sun was blazing like a Wild West high-noon showdown. …
