A. Scott Howe, a licensed architect, is a senior systems engineer with the exploration systems concepts group, mission systems concepts section, at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory. I've just finished reading this book, and was impressed with the level of detail that was provided. The book was not written as speculative (ie; science fiction) but as possible designs for space, moon and planetary facilities.

Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald known professionally as F. Scott Fitzgerald, was an American novelist and short story writer, whose works illustrate the Jazz Age. While he achieved limited success in his lifetime, he is now widely regarded as one of the greatest American writers of the 20th.

This collaborative book compiles thirty chapters on the theory and practice of designing and building inhabited environments in outer space. Given the highly visual nature of architecture, the book is rich in graphics including diagrams, design drawings, digital renderings, and photographs of models and of executed and operational designs. Written by the global network of practicing space architects, the book introduces a wealth of ideas and images explaining how humans live in space now, and how they may do so in the near and distant future. It describes the governing constraints of the hostile space environment, outlines key issues involved in designing orbital and planet-surface architecture, surveys the most advanced space architecture of today, and proposes far-ranging designs for an inspiring future. It also addresses earth-based space architecture: space analogue and mission support facilities, and terrestrial uses of space technology. In addition to surveying the range of space architecture design, from sleeping quarters to live-in rovers to moon bases and space cities, the book provides a valuable archival reference for professionals. Space enthusiasts, architects, aerospace engineers, and students will find it a fascinating read.

I've just finished reading this book, and was impressed with the level of detail that was provided. The book was not written as speculative (ie; science fiction) but as possible designs for space, moon and planetary facilities. It's obvious that considerable thought was given to the various structures, environmental support systems, communications, crew comfort, power generation, waste handling and disposal and a myriad of other areas. The photos and renderings were helpful in supporting the text, and, while not overly large, didn't detract from the message. If I'd wanted speculative future designs, I'd have opened up a Syd Mead book!

I'm an Architect by training and have always had an interest in astronomy-this book expanded my knowledge in both areas.

excellent book
