Space Facilities in Classroom Imagineering

by James A. Wise, L.V. Eberhard Cent, United States,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Engineering, Construction, and Operations in Space


This paper describes the rationale and results of two college classroom projects organized around themes of space facilities. These projects required Architecture students to prepare facility design proposals responsive to two real-world applications. The first project had students create a section proposal for an AIA travelling exhibition on 'Children and Architecture' that specifically dealt with 'space architecture'. The second project required them to prepare a submission for the NASA RFP regarding design of a habitation module for the proposed space station. While the first project emphasized imagination and interpretation of space themes for children, the second demanded attention to technical details and adherence to NASA design guidelines.
