If I had taken such an interesting course during my university studies, I would have had no doubts about what I should have done when I grew up.

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!

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.

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.

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!
