Out of this World: The New Field of Space Architecture — this is the title of the discipline’s seminal book, published last autumn by the AIAA and its technical committee on space architecture. The dialogue of aerospace and architecture/ industrial design is beginning to flourish, and concepts and ventures are increasingly making news in both design and aerospace media. Not so new a field, however: Especially in the US and Russia, architects have been involved in space programmes from the beginning. To ‘humanise’ Skylab, NASA enlisted the office of industrial designer Raymund Loewy, while on the Soviet side, architect Galina Balashova had already been working on interior programming for space station concepts.
