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.

The “Mars Architecture” studio workshop by PAACADEMY, is devoted to the exploration of the computational design capabilities applied to space architecture. The studio led by MIT Space Architect, Valentina Sumini and her assistant Marta Rossi, aims to design a resilient and sustainable infrastructure for human missions on Mars. This new design challenge requires a new design holistic approach, in which computational design plays a key role. Indeed, Space Architecture relies on some fundamental pillars that are intrinsically interconnected: space sciences, engineering, industrial design, ergonomics, medicine, psychology, and art.

You can register and watch the recordings of this event and the “Mars Architecture” workshop.

Ariel Ekblaw is the founder and Director of the MIT Space Exploration Initiative (SEI), a team of over 50 graduate students, staff, and faculty actively prototyping the artifacts of our sci-fi space future. Founded in 2016, the Initiative includes a portfolio of 40+ research projects focused on opening access to life in space, and supports an accelerator-like R&D program for payload development and spaceflight testing across MIT and many outreach communities. For the Initiative, Ariel drives space-related research across science, engineering, art, and design, and leads an annually recurring cadence of parabolic flights, sub-orbital launches, and missions to the International Space Station. Ariel graduated with a B.S. in Physics, Mathematics and Philosophy from Yale University and designed a novel space architecture habitat for her MIT PhD in autonomously self-assembling space structures.

The Space Studies Department within the John D. Odegard School of Aerospace Sciences at the University of North Dakota is seeking to fill 3 open positions. Space Studies is a strongly interdisciplinary program featuring a Ph.D. in Aerospace Sciences, an M.S. degree in Space Studies, and an undergraduate minor. These faculty positions will enhance and complement the department’s current emphasis in space policy and law, space history, planetary science, space systems engineering, human spaceflight, and management of space organizations.
The Space Studies Department is the lead institution in North Dakota’s NASA Space Grant consortium, as well as NASA’s Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Resources, or EPSCoR.

Position 1: Tenure-Track Assistant Professor of Space Propulsions

The Department of Space Studies at the University of North Dakota is hiring a tenure-track Assistant Professor with domain expertise in Space Propulsion. The successful applicant will be expected to develop and grow a research program in space propulsion (40% effort). It is anticipated that the teaching load will be up to 4 courses per academic year (40% effort), dependent on department needs and the level of research being conducted. Graduate student advisement, research committee membership, as well as service to the scholarly community, University, and Department is expected to constitute an additional 20% of effort.
This position will require knowledge and teaching skills in the following disciplines: space propulsion, aerospace engineering, aerospace structures, aerodynamics, electric propulsion, thermal systems, aerodynamic reentry, guidance and control and hypersonics.
For more information, please follow this link.

Position 2: Non-Tenure-Track Assistant Professor of Military Space

The Department of Space Studies at the University of North Dakota is hiring a non-tenure-track Assistant Professor with domain expertise in Military Space. The successful applicant will be expected to develop and grow a research program (30%) in the area of Military Space. It is anticipated that the curriculum development and teaching load will be up to 5 courses per academic year (50% effort), dependent on department needs and the level of research being conducted. Graduate and undergraduate student advisement, as well as service to the scholarly community, University, and Department is expected to constitute an additional 20% of effort. The selected candidate will need to be a US Citizen in order to access classified information.
For more information, please follow this link.

Position 3: Tenure-Track Assistant Professor of Satellite Engineering

The Department of Space Studies at the University of North Dakota is hiring a tenure-track Assistant Professor with domain expertise Satellite Engineering. A Ph.D. is required. The successful applicant will be expected to develop and grow a research program in satellite engineering (40% effort). It is anticipated that the teaching load will be up to 4 courses per academic year (40% effort), dependent on department needs and the level of research being conducted. Graduate student advisement, research committee membership, as well as service to the scholarly community, University, and Department is expected to constitute an additional 20% of effort.
This position will require knowledge and teaching skills in the following disciplines: space engineering, aerodynamics, space propulsion, satellite design, aerospace structures, thermal systems, aerodynamic reentry, guidance and control, electric propulsion and hypersonics.
