Inside SCI-Arc


SCI-Arc Alum Featured in First Comprehensive Book on Space Architecture

SCI-Arc alum Ross-Alan Tisdale (M. Arch 1 '06), together with Dr. Marc Cohen of Northrop Grumman Aerospace Systems, co-authored a chapter on the Habot project—a mobile Lunar habitat concept—in the newly released book Out of this World - The New Field of Space Architecture.

Written by a 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.

Out of this World – The New Field of Space Architecture, edited by A. Scott Howe and Brent Sherwood is published by the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics.

Tisdale is currently a Designer at HOK working on laboratories, vivariums and healthcare facilities in Florida.
