Before humans had even stepped foot on the lunar surface, the idea of establishing a base was discussed extensively, with design possibilities and environmental studies. The lunar environment presents numerous challenges to surface structural designs as well as human survival. This paper reviews concepts and challenges and proposes a new design concept based on a hybrid-inflatable framework.
