Space architecture is an interdisciplinary field that involves many branches of knowledge, such as space science, engineering, architecture, industrial design, medicine, psychology, and art. It covers all aspects of and needs for human space exploration in low earth orbit (LEO) and other celestial bodies, including the Moon and Mars.
In this Space Architecture Workshop, participants will complete a cross-pollinating design thinking activity with several experts in the field, envisioning possible future scenarios of space architecture in order to design a safe and livable ecosystem for sustaining human life in space.
The research questions will address many aspects of design around the future of crewed missions to the Moon and Mars, including habitation systems and habitability requirements, in situ resources utilization, human factor design, micrometeoroid, solar flares and GCR shielding technologies, human-machine interaction, and ethics and sustainability of space exploration.
15 min: Quick roundtable intro by facilitators (1 min max/facilitator)
30 min: Subdivision into groups, both online and in person, for the design thinking activity. Each group will brainstorm about one of these specific topics: 1. AI and construction autonomy 2. VR, AR, and wearable technology applications during operations and living on long term missions 3. Bringing lessons learned from space architecture back to Earth
15 min: Wrap-up by each group
Organizers and main facilitators: Valentina Sumini (Politecnico di Milano, MIT Media Lab), Guillermo Trotti (Trotti Studio)
External Facilitators: Olga Bannova (University of Houston – SICSA), Cosimo Razeto (Politecnico di Milano, New York Institute of Technology), Rus Gant (Harvard), Georgi Petrov (SOM), Ramandeep Shergill (Bartlett School of Architecture)
This is a hybrid workshop.
