SICSA: The Expedition: A CisLunar Martian Orbiter
This project was my introduction into Space Architecture at SICSA. There are four main portions of The Expedition's stack: Propulsion Elements, a Multi-Purpose Bay, an Inflatable sphere, and the Habitat Node. Understanding launch systems, capabilities, orbits, and orders was paramount in this project. The design challenge was developing an architectural system that efficiently filled the void. Internal program for the sphere was met through creating a modular system for expansion. Anchored from an expanded central systems trunk, elements branch toward the perimeter. The system allowed for the simple creation and separation of spaces within the inflatable. Resulting internal architecture began to mimic that of caves, with their tunnels and voids.
