This attractively produced text for architects and engineers comprises 30 contributed chapters and includes numerous color photos. After an overview of the field and its vernacular (environmental factors, habitats, psychological and physiological considerations, next-generation technologies), material is arranged in sections on orbital and planet surface architecture, and earth-based space architecture. More specifically, chapters address such topics as international space station crew quarters, design of a space hotel, habitats for long duration missions, lunar habitat constraints and concepts, Mars habitat using locally produced materials, and spaceport design. The final chapter looks at how space architecture concepts and innovations can be used on earth, and it includes a call to action. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
