The experience of movement in orbital space architecture: A narrative of weightlessness


Based upon a combination of architectural theories, the knowledge of space environment, and psychology of isolated and confined environments, this qualitative research aims to study orbital space settlement in a way to get the built space congenial to the human experience of movement. In this sense, sensors, self-propulsion or mechanical actuators, the inhabitant’s mental and visual capacity for movement, as well as the represented and imbedded movement in the built environment—including pictorial representation, kinetic formation, and the movement of natural factors—are variables. So far, most of the studies on counter-measures for minimizing stress, which are stumbling blocks to the architectural promenade, have been based on pre-launch training focusing on professional training and selection of astronauts, planning for their in-flight challenges, and protecting them from dangers. Meanwhile, if we want to promote the experience of architecture in the outer space, narratives of movement need to be enriched, because not all occupants are professional astronauts. One way to study this matter is through analyzing movement in the built space and then synthesizing the results to gain an overview of a spatial montage in which motor planning for movement and route navigation have been facilitated. Narrative, in this sense, is a proper method to investigate this context of design. Therefore, analysis has been framed in the shape of a taxonomy of movement in weightlessness. Through a qualitative investigation in Cupola Module, it has been thrown into relief that movement with regard to space has not been enriched as much as movement with regard to the form.
