Title: Through a Technical Lens
Author: Martin, Craig
Abstract: Through a Technical Lens will examine how architecture can facilitate advances in modern astronomical technique and equipment, specifically in the building typology of observatories and visitor centers. This design of an observatory will be located at the West Summit of the Beartooth Pass in Wyoming. Technique and technologies in astronomy are rapidly changing; therefore, architecture that can evolve with advances in astronomy will eliminate the need to construct new facilities every time a change occurs. These high-tech buildings must function flawlessly for the users, but they must also minimize the impact on the fragile environment in which they are placed. The architecture of an observatory should use regenerative principles and deconstruction techniques in order to accomplish this balance. Research will be analyzed from the field of astronomy, regenerative design, deconstruction, and modern building practices, with particular focus on considering the future needs of astronomers.
