Notable Space Architecture Designs of Fiction

Spacedock - Star Trek

Many people are familiar with the ISS however some of the fictional places in space might be more familiar than the real ones. Shows such as Star Trek and Star Wars have become ingrained in the publics ideas of what architecture should look like in space. We have become more accustomed to turning on the television and seeing these shows than actual news about the ISS or other space habitat related subjects that we often look to science fiction to light the way for us to go in terms of design. While it would be quite spectacular to be able to build these structures, we are hundreds if not thousands of years from having the technology to build them. It is also possible that when we have the technology, what we build will be far more impressive than anything imagined thus far.
