Good day! I am an architecture student and I am currently conducting a study about a "Space Center" for the Philippines.

In line with this, I am trying to conceptualize what should a "space center" in the Philippines should be like. Therefore, I would like to request the following data for my study:

1.) What are the necessary spaces/areas for a space center in the Philippines?

2.) What are the parameters/guidelines for constructing an astronomical optical observatory? space-related research facility? planetarium?

Note: Any data relevant to my study will be highly appreciated. Thank you :)

Additionally, I would also like to ask for data about spaces or types of rooms that are necessary for a research facility about space technology/space science.

Thank you
