S.T.A.R. (Space and Terrestrial Architectural Research) Design started 1998 as a project in co-operation with NASA, Lyndon B. Johnson Space Centre in Houston, Texas, USA. It is a project in continuous development in which the thematic vary according to what the focus of the collaborators is on at present. The studio emphasizes the study of humans in space, i.e. human space flights, building and living in space on e.g. Mars or the Moon.
Human needs and the human dependency on the environment as surroundings and objects constitute the foundation of the project. The project is divided up in three phases; 1) Humans in space. Preparatory studies with general information, lectures and workshops. 2) Field trip to NASA, JSC in Houston, Texas, USA. The students work with the human aspect of current issues in the space program for ISS. 3) Applications. Students continue developing their projects, individually or in group.
The course is conducted in collaboration with Chalmers University of Technology, University of Houston, SICSA and JSC, NASA.
