Mission Asclepios: Terrestrial lunar base

This ENAC week provides students the opportunity to conduct an analysis of the interior conditions of an analog lunar base used by Asclepios to conduct simulated space missions, and to learn more about the challenges of designing controlled interior spaces in extraterrestrial environments.


This course articulates itself around light as a structuring element of space and time, through an approach that intertwines sun dynamics, materiality, construction and ecological footprint.
