Space Architecture is the theory and practice of designing and building habitable environments in outer space. It includes a multidisciplinary approach through fields such as design, engineering, physiology, sociology, psychology, etc.

 

The NOAH VR Experience by AAKA Space Studio was created while following a new design approach where the team analyses the habitat from the inside. It gives a unique perspective while trying to imagine and understand the living conditions provided for the crewmembers in the habitat. In the VR Experience the students will have the unique chance of seeing and interacting with an innovative origami habitat, which provides comfort while protecting the crew from the environmental factors such as extreme temperatures, radiation, lack of atmosphere, dust storms, etc
