Detailed Description

The authors distinguish space architecture from systems engineering in two respects -- space architecture is oriented toward supporting human activity and trying to shape the overall project to accomplish the end objectives.  I would call it "mission engineering for human spaceflight."  Includes discussion of both orbital architecture (including long duration missions and artificial gravity), and planetary and lunar surface architecture.  Numerous photos and illustrations.  Unfortunately, it omits entirely any discussion of Gerard O'Neill's Space Colonies that began much of the widespread interest and detailed architecting of the human settlement of space.
