Abstract

Space Architecture is the theory and practice of designing and building an extraterrestrial environment for human habitation. It combines engineering and aesthetics, requiring knowledge of space environments, space systems engineering, and the psychology of isolated and confined environments. Over the last decade, Space Architecture has become an emerging issue for future space exploration, and is increasingly seen as a fundamental requirement for supporting long-term space exploration and settlement on other planets.
