Transcript The Future In Space Is At UH UH architecture professors Larry Bell and Guillermo Trotti are the director and assistant director of the Sasakawa International Center for Space Architecture. SICSA will be housed in the new Architecture building and will develop projects for such contractors as NASA, Boeing and Rockwell. A Japanese philanthropic foundation presented the first of three $1 million gifts to the College of Architecture for an international center to develop and promote the peaceful uses of space and technology. The $3 million gift — the largest foreign gift the university has received — from the Japanese Shipbuilding Industry Foundation (JSIF) will fund the Sasakawa International Center for Space Architecture (SICSA), previously named the Center for Experimental Architecture. The money will fund research work for 13 to 15 students and increase enrollment in the College and also generate more graduate work. "Our goal is to remain the world's leader for space architecture," Larry Bell, Director of SICSA and UH architecture professor said. The College is known worldwide in the field of space architecture. Of two symposiums in Washington, D.C. and Bristol, England, the UH delegation is the only group of architects invited. The rest of the visitors will be engineers. "When you have a program like we have here, it's hard for me to be humble," Bell said. The JSIF is led by Japanese industrialist and philanthropist Ryiochi Sasakawa under the directive that Japan repay the world for its generosity during World War II. In a prepared statement read by UH President Richard Van Horn, Sasakawa said "it is one of the pleasures of my life to be able to contribute to the SICSA of the Uni versity of Houston to real ze peaceful and beneficial uses of space." Sasakawa received i he United Nations Peace Medal in 1982. With grants like this mak ng exploration possible, it is ut to private industry and acade lia to keep exploration in spite going, Bell said. "We are committed to he progress and are not going to abandon leadership in spate," he said. "We have a need for orgs li- zations like SICSA to act as he economic, political and sciei title action drivers for the wor d's manned space programs." Bell and SICSA's assoc ite director, Guillermo Trotti w?re two of the four co-founders of Space Industries, Inc., a private firm that is developing an orbiting space laboratory schedu ed for launch by NASA's spice shuttle in 1992. Trotti's thesis as UH undergraduate, a lunar base co-designed with John Dossey, has been at the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum in Washington. D.C. Bell said that not enough money and resources have been set aside from business and Continued 222
