Abstract

This paper focuses on the Space transplanet habitations, or spaceships, that will host astronauts during their transfer to other celestial bodies. In this enterprise, the transfer phase is the most critical in resource shortages (e.g., air, water, room), making it harsh under habitability perspectives. The increasing number of involved scientific disciplines has raised difficulties in managing the design process, and the traditional design strategies have collapsed under the growth of complexities. PASTA proposes an implementation of generative design for the spaceship's internal configurations. This framework focuses on the multi-objective and performance-driven design process, allowing a designer to explore multiple layouts of a complex 'building' such as a spaceship. It encodes habitability needs in an unusual environment and estimates each configuration performance among intertwined needs, including adjacency relationships, by an evaluation system. As a result, PASTA can automate part of the spaceship design tasks and provide decision-making support by evaluating generated solutions, improving the handling of complexities in the design process.
