Marie-Pier Boucher

Marie-Pier Boucher headshotDr. Boucher’s research focuses on the design of habitats for sustaining life in extreme environments. She is currently working on a book project, which looks at the relationship between health, architectural design and perceptual activity in a range of extreme environments (physical and symbolic) to examine how the changes in direction and orientation induced by levitation and microgravity can inform the design of Earth-based habitats. She is also working on an umbrella project, Interplanetary Habitation: The Earth, the Moon, Mars and the City, which investigates the socio-technical future of planetary life in relation to growing concerns over health and biotechnology, mobility and artificial intelligence.
