Alle Informationen zu Architecture for Astronauts
This book presents research at the interface between people, Space and objects. Evaluating extra-terrestrial habitats in comparison to the user's perspective, this book proposes a new framework, comparing these buildings from the viewpoint of human activity.
A habitat in outer space has to fulfill various specifications. With all very precise physiological, psychological, social and technological specifications connected to limitations such as transport, a very tight framework for creativity of living and working spaces is created. This work presents the research results at the interface between people, Space and objects in an extra-terrestrial environment. The evaluation of extra-terrestrial habitats in comparison to the user s perspective leads to a new framework, comparing these buildings from the viewpoint of human activity. It can be used as reference or as conceptual framework for the purpose of evaluation. It also summarizes relevant human-related design directions for the activities. The work is addressed to architects and designers as well as engineers.

From the reviews: "Sandra Hauplik-Meusburger's work, Architecture for Astronauts: An Activity-Based Approach, contributes to this effort through an architectural exploration of habitats and the needs of astronauts in undertaking longer, more complicated voyages than ever before. ... This is an intelligent, challenging book ... useful for designers and architects, engineers, and other professionals." (Roger D. Launius, Quest: The History of Spaceflight, Vol. 19 (4), 2012)
