Space Architecture

Space Architecture Research

While David has participated in many space architecture workshops and design projects such as Lunar habitats and Mars transit vehicles design in the past,  his conference papers have focused on using space architecture as a mean to connect the highly technical and specialised space industries with the conventional architecture disciplines and subjects, which is more relatable to the ordinary life of the general public.
