A listing of Lunar Architecture Entries


There are many ways we could go about building a lunar base. Here are just a few of them along with some critical design considerations.


Architectures

Architecture as Mole Hills
The living space could be inflated structures buried in trenches.


Architecture as Tent City
We could use tents to protect inflated living space.


Architecture in Field Stone
The loose rocks of the Moon could provide the needed thermal and radiation protection.


Supporting Architecture

Here are a few ideas on building lunar settlements.


Meteor Hazards
Things can fall on your head.
Radiation Problem
Protections we take for granted on Earth must be intentionally provided.
Roof Support
Can the internal air pressure support the roof?
Power for Settlements
Electrical power is the key to survival.
Site Selection
Choosing a good site may be the most important decision you have to make.
Slopes
Nothing on the Moon is truly flat.
