Architecture for Astronauts: An Activity-based Approach by Sandra Häuplik-Meusburger

By Sandra Häuplik-Meusburger

Living and dealing in extra-terrestrial habitats ability being most likely at risk of very harsh environmental, social, and mental stipulations. With the stringent technical requirements for release cars and delivery into area, a truly tight framework for the production of liveable house is determined. those constraints bring about a really difficult “partnership” among the habitat and the inhabitant.

This ebook is the results of getting to know the interface among humans, house and gadgets in an extra-terrestrial setting. The assessment of extra-terrestrial habitats compared to the user’s viewpoint results in a brand new framework, evaluating those structures from the perspective of human job. it may be used as reference or as conceptual framework for the aim of review. It additionally summarizes proper human-related layout instructions. The paintings is addressed to architects and architects in addition to engineers.
