Pressurized Lunar Rover, front view - This work was done for a RISD Collaborative Studio with the Interior Architecture and Industrial Design Departments, with guidance from NASA's Habitability Design Center.

The fifteen of us were asked to develop concepts for a vehicle that could provide four astronauts with a mobile habitat to support them on the Moon or Mars for up to fourteen days.
Ideation and Research - After individual, then small (5 person) group concept exploration, we chose concepts based on feedback from our NASA advisers and distributed responsibilities among team members.
SuitLock Development - I worked on ingress/egress functions, using sketching and modeling to iterate ideas and communicate possible design opportunities to my team.

I decided that it would be easier and safer for astronauts to have to climb as little as possible while wearing the suits.
Interior Rendering - The last step was creating presentation materials for final review by NASA.

This view shows the pack on the back of the suit as integral to the suit-hatch, and how the hatches are close to the floor.
