Event: Collaborative BIM for NASA’s Deep Space Habitat Design

GTeam webinar will look at Cal Poly Pomona student and faculty led NASA Deep Space Habitat Design process using BIM technologies and GTeam by Gehry Technologies


Next week on Tuesday, 11 March 2014, Gehry Technologies, Inc., will be hosting an online webinar titled, “Collaborative BIM for NASA’s Deep Space Habit Design.” Space is limited in this exciting new webinar so reserve a seat as soon as you can.

What and Why

Cal Poly, Pomona professor Michal Fox will be presenting his work with students and space architecture experts in the study and design of NASA’s Deep Space Habit.

The design challenged centered on developing a vertically-oriented habitat for space with volumetric constraints and a “dynamic envelope” which must contain everything its deep space inhabitants rely on from the start, without resupply. Professor Fox and his students used GTeam and Building Information Modeling (BIM) as an approach to setup an inclusive model that automatically managed “consumables” and their locations within the habitat, and compared alternative architectural designs to find the most elegant engineering/architectural solution within a constraint-driven approach.

The vertically-oriented deep space habitat was designed, prototyped and tested by architecture students, in collaboration with consultants in space architecture alongside the faculty and students throughout the entire process.

Michael Fox is a founding partner of FoxLin, an Associate Professor of Architecture at Cal Poly Pomona, and is current current President of ACADIA. His practice, teaching and research are centered on interactive, behavioural and kinetic architecture.  He is the author of the book Interactive Architecture and the upcoming book Adaptive: Bio-Robotic Architecture.

Michael has won numerous awards in architectural ideas competitions and his work has been featured in international periodicals, books, and exhibitions, most recently at the 2013 Venice Biennale. His work has been funded by NASA, the Annenberg Foundation, the Graham Foundation and others. Michael has taught at MIT, The Hong Polytechnic University, the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, and SCI-Arc.
