SICSA brings more than 30 years of internationally recognized experience in habitat research, planning and design for space and extreme terrestrial environments.
The Sasakawa International Center for Space Architecture (SICSA) is a research and design organization within the University of Houston’s Gerald D. Hines College of Architectures. Such settings share many urgent problems and issues. They typically impose logistic transport challenges for people, equipment and supplies; present severe facility construction and operational constraints; demand carefu
The Space Architecture exhibition is open at the Tsiolkovski Museum of Cosmonautics in Kaluga, Russian Federation. SICSA and MARCHI student work featured there along with the winners of the design contest “Handshake in Space”. The contest and exhibition are part of the grant sponsored by the US embassy in Moscow.

DR OLGA BANNOVA, SPACE ARCHITECT, HAS JOINED DML’s ‘EARTH TO SPACE’ TEAM!
The ‘Earth to Space, Telepresence Connectivity and Simulated Microgravity Immersion Project’ is run by Deakin MotionLab’s Immersive Realities Research Group and scheduled for completion in 2023. A world-renowned space architect from the University of Houston (Texas), Dr Bannova joins a transdisciplinary team that investigates how a sense of weightlessness can be provided for students engaged with the International Space Station (ISS), using a low-cost telepresent experience.
Telepresence is the sensation of being elsewhere, created by virtual reality technology. We hope to combine augmented, virtual, haptic and physical elements to so that participants feel as if they are actually on the International Space Station. This research brings together design disciplines including digital design, communication design, industrial/product design and architecture.
The Team Leader, Dr Russell Kennedy and Dr Bannova worked closely with the World Design Organisation (WDO) and NASA’s ISS in 2020 to explore the potential of an Orbital University with a mission to improve life on earth. The proposed university would be called the McAuliffe Orbital University to honour the memory of Christa McAuliffe. Christa was scheduled to become the first teacher in space as a pioneer of the NASA Teacher in Space Project, but tragically lost her life in the 1986 Challenger disaster.
Christa once said, “Space is for everybody. It’s not just for a few people in science or math or for a select group of astronauts. That’s our new frontier out there, and it’s everybody’s business to know about space.” Her vision will be honoured by DML’s immersive system to enable students on earth to participate, remotely, in activities, experiments and research from a terrestrial base.
In explaining why she feels the ‘Earth to Space’ project is so worthwhile, Dr Olga Bannova said, “Earth and all of us are part of space, connected to it and depend on it. This project aims to help learning about space and people in off-Earth environment and stimulate creative thinking, providing means to evaluate ideas in orbit without physical presence requirement and discover their Earth applications.”

A new book about design for space environment: This book explores if and how architectural principles and strategies need to be transformed when applied to the extreme conditions of outer space. It presents concepts developed by great minds in the fields of space exploration and science-fiction, ones which can inspire new ways into the future.
Human Habitats Beyond Planet Earth
For many, the idea of Space Architecture as a discipline lies in the domain of science fiction, where everything is possible simply because it happens ‘very far in the future’. Is Space Architecture a fiction or reality? This book explores if and how architectural principles and strategies need to be transformed when applied to the extreme conditions of outer space. It presents concepts developed by great minds in the fields of space exploration and science-fiction, ones which can inspire new ways into the future. The book also presents the philosophy of Space Architecture, arguing for example that the design of space habitats needs to be human-centred while defining ways for humans to co-exist in new environments. These views are complemented by examples of architectures from current and planned space missions, organised by private companies as well as government agencies.https://dom-publishers.com/collections/frontpage/products/space-architecture
