Lecture and Book Launch: International Space Station: Architecture Beyond Earth

Lecture and Book Launch: International Space Station: Architecture Beyond Earth
Lecture and Book Launch: International Space Station: Architecture Beyond Earth

Join David Nixon at the Architectural Association on March 2nd for an evening lecture and book launch for his new book – International Space Station: Architecture Beyond Earth – which is published by Circa Press on 1 March. This book offers the first comprehensive account of the Station’s conception, design development and assembly in space, and its publication coincides with Tim Peake’s current mission to the Station.

In January 1984 President Ronald Reagan gave NASA the go-ahead to build a Space Station. A generation later, the International Space Station is now a highly successful research centre orbiting the Earth. The history of this extraordinary project is a complex weave of powerful threads – political, diplomatic, financial and technological among them.

David Nixon is a British architect with a particular interest in space exploration. He co-founded Future Systems with Jan Kaplicky in 1978. He moved to California and was among a handful of architects to work on the early Space Station in the 1980s. He later established an office in Los Angeles to focus on a broad range of space work ranging from ground infrastructure to flight experiments.
