Lecture by Olga Bannova

Greenhouse Design and Technology

In the frame of the Module Emerging Fields in Architecture (*), VUT Vienna

Dr. Bannova is a Research Professor at the University of Houston’s College of Engineering, and Director of the Master of Science in Space Architecture program and Sasakawa International Center for Space Architecture. Dr. Bannova conducts research and design studies of orbital and surface habitats and settlements, including inflatable structures, special design influences and requirements for different gravity conditions in space, and habitat concepts for extreme environments on Earth. As SICSA director, she is leading the center and its MS-Space Architecture program advancing students’ success, developing research and design projects in connection with the space industry. She has authored dozens of technical papers, book chapters and popular science articles. She is an author of “Space architecture education for engineers and architects” (2016) and “Space Architecture: Human Habitats beyond the planet Earth” (in prints). Dr. Bannova is a chair of the AIAA Space Architecture Technical Committee, member of the ASCE’s Technical Committee on Space Engineering and Construction. She recently received 2019 Outstanding Technical Contribution Award from the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Aerospace Division.

Dr. Bannova has been educating students who are persuading the world’s only Master of Science in Space Architecture degree for 14 years. Her students are coming from different backgrounds: aerospace engineering, architecture, human factors, and also include professionals from NASA and NASA contractors.

Research studies and grants include: DSG Habitability, Lunar Base, and Deployable Airlock Studies (Boeing), 2 NASA’s Minimum Functionality Habitation Element studies (Boeing and ILC Dover), SpaceHab’s Lunar Exploration System, Commercial Launch Facility in West Texas (TAC), Houston Spaceport (HAS).

The Module ‚Emerging Fields in Architecture` imparts knowledge about the latest research, design and development in research disciplines beyond mainstream architectural topics. In this module we encourage discussion and ideas that go radically beyond the traditional way of thinking. Our goal is to trigger a process of re-thinking and finding solutions to design challenges using an interdisciplinary approach. For the winterterm 2020, we will look for and trace the topic of ‘essentials’ from various angles throughout the module.
