Curious about the dark rods - I love the rhythm of all the elements in this room, I noticed the rods intersecting the wood between the glass panes, are these added for visual interest or are they serving another (structural) purpose also?

They replaced the wood collar ties, which are beams that resist the roof's potential to "kick out". Since they are in tension only, a thin bar or cable can be used. An engineer must OK it obviously.
