An architect and technologist with a passion for human space exploration, Xavier De Kestelier is the head of design technology and innovation at HASSELL studio. He believes that architects have a crucial role to play in the design of any future settlements on Mars or the moon and has worked on space habitat projects with both ESA and NASA. He leads this panel of architects and anthropologists to reflect on advancements in space architecture today and discuss expanded and enduring designs for an inspiring future – one that still tackles the less sexy aspects of space travel. For instance: cramped spaces, cluttered walls full of equipment and astronauts in shorts and polo shirts operating standard laptops.
