Excellent c ourse. One of the best courses I've taken online or seen in person. It used images , graphics, and verbal explanations in a very succinct and coordinated manner. AS an Architectural Professor I felt that this presentation was highly successful.Michael A.

Great course with the right amount of technical information It was helpful to see the solutions that were tried and rejected before the final scheme was determined. It would have been nice to have more pictures of the rest of the museum at the end, even though not relevant to the design of the space frame.Laura K.

Informative overview of the complex architectural/structural solution for the Aspen Art Museum's roof space frame. The time spent explaining the design process, along with the structural approaches which were ultimately not chosen for the final building, is greatly appreciated. Interesting to see all the mock ups that were constructed throughout the process and how they informed the design and constructability.Stephane B.

The course was exceedingly interesting. The course makes a good case for the possibilities of timber space frame structures. The course was comprehensive in covering the challenges involved in such projects. Its focus on connections was particularly noteworthy. It would be useful to have some downloadable content based on this lecture for further study.Alexander A.

I don't agree with the "correct" answer to question six. The presentation clearly states that fully threaded screws were used for the connections.George C.

this shows how you can overcome a bad idea with engineering, and how $900/sf can be justified.Alberto O.
