Presentation of the Book Architecture for Astronauts and discussion with Architects and Astronauts.
"Living and working in extra-terrestrial habitats means being potentially vulnerable to very harsh environmental, social, and psychological conditions. With the stringent technical specifications for launch vehicles and transport into space, a very tight framework for the creation of habitable space is set. These swiss replica watches constraints result in a very demanding “partnership” between the habitat and the inhabitant."
The interface between people, space and objects in an extra-terrestrial environment was discussed by the participants.
