Abstract:

This report contains the proceedings of the symposium Programming for Habitabiliy. The three major topics discussed were habitability criteria generation processes, communication of habitability criteria, and design and social scientist collaboration. In the first area, analogies between habitability programming and testing of NASAs space flight environments and of everyday buildings were sought. Several approaches to the formulaton of habitability criteria based on research information were presented. Formats and problems for the communication of habitability criteria, specifically in the institutional section, were exposed in the second topic area. Three charrettes simulating designer and social scientist collaboration in programming various building types were held in the third area.
