Lunar Buildings and the Builders - 3D and Robotics Concepts with Xavier De Kestelier

The Irish Tech News Podcast

In this podcast I discuss with Xavier De Kestelier about the recent projects they have started on for ESA.  With the march forward to the Moon predicted to be around 2030 his team at Hassell Studio have been collaborating with other agencies to make this idea a reality.  Hear about the upcoming facets of each projects and how they have selected possible features. Xavier leads our global design technology and innovation team, setting strategy and advising on the tools and knowledge we need to succeed. Both an architect and technologist, Xavier harnesses technology to create more powerful, futurefocused design solutions. That means he’s responsible for overseeing our work in computational design, building information modelling, visualisation and virtual reality worldwide. Over the past decade he’s forged a reputation as an industry leader in the exploration and adoption of parametric design and digital fabrication. Most recently, he was behind our concept for a ‘home’ on Mars – part of NASA’s 3D Printed Habitat Challenge. A TED talker and regular speaker at major design and tech events, Xavier is also a director of Smartgeometry, a non-profit, global educational network for computational and digital design specialists.

Xavier De Kestelier: designing buildings for Mars and the moon

Spacecraft — The Workplace Design Podcast

Xavier De Kestelier from HASSELL took us on a mind-blowing journey into space in this episode of the podcast. We talk about the challenges and possible solutions for designing buildings for Mars and the moon. From gamma radiation and communication lag, to the issue of transporting heavy building materials, there certainly is a lot to contend with. But by harnessing learnings from architecture and design, including Gaudí’s hanging methodology, and the use of bamboo as a renewable, strong and pliable material, his team is coming up with some innovative solutions.See the show notes

Abenteuer eines interplanetaren Architekten | Xavier De Kestelier

TEDTalks Wissenschaft und Medizin

Wie werden wir in anderen Teilen unserer Galaxie leben? Auf der Erde gibt es genügend natürliche Ressourcen, um Gebäude zu bauen, aber dieses Material mit uns zum Mond oder Mars zu schicken, ist umständlich und zu teuer. Der Architekt Xavier De Kestelier hat hierzu einen radikalen Plan entwickelt: Er setzt Roboter und Weltraumstaub ein, um interplanetare Häuser als 3D-Druck zu erstellen. Erfahren Sie mehr über das gerade entstehende Forschungsgebiet der Raumfahrt-Architektur in diesem faszinierenden Vortrag über die (vielleicht) gar nicht so ferne Zukunft.

다른 행성에서의 건축을 위한 모험 | 자비어 드 케스텔리어 (Xavier De Kestelier)

TEDTalks 과학과 의료

은하계 다른 곳에서 우리는 어떻게 살 수 있을까요? 지구에서는 건축에 사용가능한 천연 자원들이 충분하지만, 그런 재료들을 달이나 화성까지 보내는 것은 비용 측면에서 엄두도 낼 수 없습니다. 이 때문에 건축가인 자비어 드 케스텔리어는 우주 먼지를 활용한 3D 프린트 로봇으로 다른 행성에 주거지를 만드는 계획을 세웠습니다. 그의 강연을 통해서 그리 머지않은 미래에 펼쳐질 우주 건축이라는 새로운 분야에 대해 알아보세요.
