    Thank you for including this important building. In addition to its many notable features which are readily available for reading elsewhere, I’d like to underscore a few. First, there is no single “architect” associated with this project—it is an amazing collaborative effort of thousands of individuals, hundreds of companies, and 15 governments. Secondly, I find it interesting that ISS is being considered by many as a “building” rather than a “vehicle”. Perhaps an appreciation for the emerging field of space architecture is slowly dawning.
