DOMUS 1 AND DYMAXION: TWO CONCEPT DESIGNS FOR LUNAR HABITATS
Janis Huebner-Moths, David Endmann, and Gary T. Moore

Two concept designs for lunar habitats are explored and developed in this monograph based on human factors/environment-behavior considerations. Attention is given to initial operating configuration design requirements, different technological options, and 12 different habitat concepts. Domus 1 is a pressurized self-supporting membrane structure (PSSMS) proposed by Chow and Lin. Dymaxion is a dome structure based on the work of Buckminster Fuller. The master plan, construction sequencing, technical subsystems, and interior configuration of both of these concepts are presented.

GENESIS II: ADVANCED LUNAR OUTPOST
Joseph P. Fieber, Janis Huebner-Moths and Kerry L. Paruleski (edited by Gary T. Moore)

Sponsored by NASA/Universities Space Research Association, this study investigated advanced lunar habitats for 11 astronauts and mission specialists for durations of 20 months. Design recommendations are based on environmental response to the harsh lunar environment, human habitability, transportability, constructability, resilience and suitability for NASA lunar research missions in the early 21st Century. Drawings include master plans, construction sequencing, detailed floor plans, sections, interior perspectives and construction details.

GENESIS LUNAR OUTPOST: CRITERIA AND DESIGN
Space Architecture Design Group (edited by Timothy Hansmann and Gary T. Moore)

This study, the third in the space architecture series, focuses on the design of an early stage lunar outpost. The driving assumptions of the scenario are that the base would serve as a research facility and technology test bed for future Mars missions. It will sustain five experimental facilities: lunar surface mining, construction technology and materials test bed, closed environmental life support system, lunar farside observatory, and a human factors and environment-behavior research facility.

GENESIS LUNAR OUTPOST: PROGRAM/REQUIREMENTS DOCUMENT FOR AN EARLY STAGE LUNAR OUTPOST
Space Architecture Design Group (edited by Timothy Hansmann, Edwin Cordes and Gary T. Moore)

Second document in a series from the Space Architecture Design Group. Developed under the first year of a three-year grant from NASA, the program covers humans factors, environment-behavior, structural, construction processes, life-system and related needs for an 8-12 person lunar base for assignments lasting up to 20 months. The program includes sections on base master planning, base operations, command center, technical support habitat, and all related design requirements.

PAX PERMANENT MARTIAN BASE: SPACE ARCHITECTURE FOR THE FIRST HUMAN HABITATION ON MARS
Janis Huebner-Moths, Joseph P. Fieber, Patrick J. Rebholz and Kerry L. Paruleski (edited by Gary T. Moore)

The Advanced Design Program in Space Architecture at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee investigated the implications of different mission scenarios, the Martian environment, supporting technologies, and especially environment-behavior considerations for the design of the first permanent Martian base. The report includes habitability design requirements based on environment-behavior research, concept design, and design development for the first permanent Martian base and habitat.

SPACE ARCHITECTURE: LUNAR BASE SCENARIOS
Anthony J. Schnarsky, Edwin G. Cordes, Thomas M. Crabb and Mark K. Jacobs (edited by Cordes, Gary T. Moore and Stephen Frahm)

A study of design alternatives for a lunar base settlement. The research explores the lunar environment requirements, program development, goal identification, and processes involved in lunar design solutions. The report is the result of a 1987 graduate design studio at the UWM Department of Architecture. Graphic presentations involved the use of computer-aided design techniques (CAD). Highly illustrated.

ISBN 0-938744-59-3
Pp. vi +80; figures, charts and 8 design projects
R88-1/
