Futures Past and Present: Space Architecture in Imagination and Reality

Apollo 11 and 2001: A Space Odyssey were of the same era. 50 years later, our space future is not what we used to imagine. A space historian, astronaut, space journalist, NewSpace executive, and three space architects will discuss the gap between imagination and reality. Is this gap useful or destructive? How does today’s changing landscape – “independent space” sector, Chinese space, “realistic” media depictions – change how we envision space architecture?
