Space Architecture/Walking Cities/Future
This course will examine the architect’s role in the design of moon bases, under sea colonies, extreme environment labs, disaster relief modules and off world resorts. Students will study both the imagined (science fiction) and real (Freedom Space Station); including Shimizu’s proposed space resort, Virgin Galactic Spaceport and NASA’s committed Moon and Mars bases. The course will be a resource and research collection based class and will include a design component; students will work in teams to design habits for moon bases, under-sea colonies and extreme environments.
