Architecture in space?

"In her final days as Commander of the International Space Station, Sunita Williams of NASA recorded an extensive tour of the orbital laboratory and downloaded the video on Nov. 18, just hours before she, cosmonaut Yuri Malenchenko and Flight Engineer Aki Hoshide of the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency departed in their Soyuz TMA-05M spacecraft for a landing on the steppe of Kazakhstan. The tour includes scenes of each of the station's modules and research facilities with a running narrative by Williams of the work that has taken place and which is ongoing aboard the orbital outpost." -

Commander Sunita Williams launches several challenges to architects to improve the living conditions on space facilities on mission. With a lot of specificities and special needs, architecture can play an essential role proposing new paradigms and solutions for this scenery.
