Architecture and Engineering in Space

The links links between Engineering, Architecture and space exploration are explored in this presentation - what type of space suit performs best in space? How engineers are designing systems so settlers can survive on arrival. Engineering pushes the boundaries of what is possible and Space Architects design the environments that will be inhabited in outer space. The speaker panel comprised Stuart Green - Remote Sensing (RS) Specialist in the Spatial Analysis Unit in Teagasc, Dr Niamh Shaw - Irish engineer, scientist and performer, Dava Newman - MIT Aeronautics Professor and Engineer and Gui Trotti – Architect / designer.
