What People Say About our Space Courses

Ester Rachele Mussari
fantastic!!

I am a phd in architecture with a strong interest in space design and this course maybe will be the starting point for a focus research! everything was so clear and direct. I also enjoyed the bibliography, although I would have preferred a pdf from which to copy references. Thank you!
Pierpaolo D'Amici
So inspiring!

I still have some classes to follow, but after reaching "Planetary outpost elements configuration" it is already the time to give 5 stars. I appreciate so much the multidisciplinary perspective of Barbara Imhof and René Waclavicek, where the operational aspects are perfectly harmonized with the humanistic ones.

Outstanding course for everyone interested in futuristic space architecture and design
Read More
This is an outstanding course for everyone interested in futuristic space architecture and design. The instructors are very knowledgeable and address the key topics clearly and in sufficient amount of detail. The course materials (both videos and suggested readings) provide a solid base for understanding space architecture and design. I highly recommend this course to people who are fascinated with discovering the space and the possibilities of living on other planets. Additional thanks to Mars City for making the course more affordable.
Mirha Vlahovljak
Great opportunity

If you are just starting or if you just want to widen your horizons in the field of Space Architecture this course is just right for you. You are taught by professionals, experts such as Space architects Dr.techn. Barbara Imhof and René Waclavicek. After you finish the course you will want to learn more and more about every segment of Space Architecture and its design.
Wilca Oconer
Short but very jam-packed with information

I love the way the course and as laid out. Very comprehensive and informative without drowning the student in jargon. The instructors are lovely and presented the course material nicely.
Alessandro Sepe
An in-depth and accurate introduction
Read More
The course works as an in-depth and accurate introduction to the wider matter that is Space Architecture and studies. It is clearly exposed and the two teachers are directly involved in innovative and groundbreaking projects. I have appreciated the exposition of the latest and most advanced designs and technologies. Recommended also for professional architects who want to broaden their horizons to infinity....and beyond!
Refaad Sha
Very insightful

Presented by Barbara Imhof and Rene Waclavicek, the course was highly engaging and their goals were very clear. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone interested in space architecture.
Elisa Micheli
Really interesting

wonderful contents , truly revived my interest in space and astronomy once again .
Gustavo Vilches
A solid introduction
Read More
With a topic of such depth and potential branching, the lectures manage to compile a solid and clear map of the current state and future development of the field. The first-hand knowledge of the lecturers comes clear in every presentation and the result is always enticing and instructive. The overall experience is great and you really want to come back for more. The only thing that can use some improvement is the delivery of the presentations (Graphics, video & speech, transitions) to avoid distractions from the fantastic content. Thank you for a stimulating experience. Hope to see you again soon!

I would like to thank the School of Disruption for organizing the course, inviting to Q&A live session, and the most crusial - for choosing to focus on such emerging discipline as Space Architecture and Design. Special thanks to Barbara Imhof and René Waclavicek for sharing unique experience and providing an insightful content; to Paola , and Igor Ciminelli - for keeping in touch and keeping the students updated.

F.A.Q.

Does the course require live participation?

No, the course is entirely on-demand and consists of video-recorded lessons that can be accessed from any device and at any time from the students’ personal dashboard. However, online meetings are organized throughout the year (for members only) for Q&A sessions with speakers and experts in the field.

Why should I take this course?

The thin line between design and computation diminishes furthermore, but foundational questions remain intact: How designs become ‘computational’? Why does it matter? What does the field of design and computation have to offer? How one can become a ‘true’ computational designer? This course willbring you the answers.

Does access to the courses have an expiry day?

No, the course has lifetime access.

Does the School issue certifications?

Of course, once you have finished the course, you can download the School of Disruption certification, recognized by the Swiss Institute for Disruptive Innovation. The certificate can be attached to your CV or registered on LinkedIn.
