Abstract

This paper discusses the influence that the research interests of those who teach about space structures has on the content of the courses they develop, the methods of teaching that they employ and the learning experience
of the students that they teach. An outline space structures curriculum is proposed and ways of amplifying, refining and disseminating this are suggested. The potential for using studio design projects as a vehicle for teaching about space structures and, in some cases, as a research tool, are also discussed. It is not intended that the initial ideas presented here be taken as an absolute solution but as a rudimentary foundation to provoke a wide-ranging discussion about the teaching of space structures. That is to try and answer the question - what should be taught, how and to whom?
