Event Details

Aurelia Institute is a nonprofit space architecture R&D lab committed to building the coming generations of structures and habitats humanity will use to travel, work, play, and live in space. Aurelia’s first novel space architecture paradigm, TESSERAE (Tessellated Electromagnetic Space Structures for the Exploration of Reconfigurable, Adaptive Environments), has been flown to the ISS to assess the technical feasibility of autonomous, magnetic self-assembly in microgravity. To make this vision a reality, the Aurelia team has been working on a full-scale, terrestrial mock-up of the future habitat concept, the TESSERAE Pavilion, designed around the act of ‘breaking bread’ in space — how will we grow, cook, and share meals in space, and how might we foster community and care in orbit?

Aurelia welcomes all ISSRDC attendees to our soft public launch of the TESSERAE Pavilion on Monday, July 29 to imagine the future of life in space through an Earth-based demonstration.
