What will future space habitats for humans on the Moon or Mars look like? What do we need to consider when we design habitats for outer space? Dr. Samer El Sayary designs future habitats for outer space. He is a practicing Architect and Assistant Professor at the Beirut Arab university. https://www.samerelsayary.com.

Here, Dr Sayary is interviewed by Andrea Macdonald, Founder of ideaXme.

Listen to this interview, not only to hear of his unique approach to designing for both Earth and Space - see his international award winning designs for human space habitats.

Dr. Sayary pushes the boundaries of experimental design combining cutting edge science and technology to produce new realms of architectural design that addresses both problems on earth as well as outer space. Sayary has received over 36 international and national architecture awards. He has been the recipient of the prestigious Hassan Fathy Award twice. His works are recognized and published widely in many local and international media appearances including in Wired Magazine and the Discovery Channel.

Transcript:

Andrea Macdonald, Founder, ideaXme: [00:00:17] It's just a matter of time before humans inhabit the Moon and Mars. But what sort of habitats are we going to design to survive there? I'm here with a multi-award winning architect who has considered this question. In your words, who are you?

Dr. Samer El Sayary, Assistant Professor of Architecture: [00:00:59] My name is Samer El Sayary. I'm an Assistant Professor of architecture, at Beirut Arab University. I'm a researcher and an award-winning architect. I have a special passion for outer space architecture. I graduated 20 years ago in 2001, at the top of my class. Through the years have gained over 36 awards and prizes. Most of them are from international institutes, across four different continents. I served as a Mars City Design ambassador for three years in Los Angeles, and that was because I was awarded the first prize in 2017. I've also served at The Jacques Rougerie Foundation as a junior ambassador in Paris, which I have been doing for the last two years and I still represent them.

Dr. Samer El Sayary, Assistant Professor in Architecture: [00:01:55] I've succeeded in exhibiting my work in several countries, including NASA's Johnson Space Centre in Houston in 2019. I've exhibited in France twice in 2016 and 2020. In Greece during 2015, in Tunisia during 2011 and in Egypt in 2011 and 2013 during some prestigious awards and honours. My work has been featured in the Discovery Channel UK, on Dutch TV in California Dreamers, Wired Magazine in 2017, Up- Magazine, L’arca magazine, Architectural d'aujordhui, universetoday.com, designboom.com, archdaily.com, spacearchitect.org, among many others.

Dr. Samer El Sayary, Assistant Professor in Architecture: [00:02:33] I see myself belonging to the first generation of space architects who will write the future, turning science fiction into design reality. We see ourselves as the people who will pave the road for humanity to survive and thrive outside of Earth in the near future and on Earth as well, by using existing technologies or near future technologies. Dr. Samer El Sayary, Assistant Professor in Architecture: [00:03:31] I can define myself as a science-tect. It's a new expression that means an experimental architect who uses science in making architecture and then experiments with this architecture and finally, produces scientific papers. As a by-product of the awarded projects, just a couple of weeks ago, I succeeded in publishing in the Q1 Scientific Journal, Solar Energy Journal. I work in a closed loop circular way, starting by reading science, producing architecture and then experimenting with this architecture, reaching new conclusions and then writing new scientific papers.

Dr. Samer El Sayary, Assistant Professor in Architecture: [00:05:20] I do believe that we are living in this era and we have a responsibility to take all of this accumulated science and rethink it, redefine it using cutting edge technology, what we have today and what is available today and to anticipate what will be available in the near future.
