Hello Jon Ellison; regarding the above image you wrote:

These comments are incorrect.
The roof structure for this space is an arch. It is composed of segments of opposing voussoirs. It is not a “triangulated, opposed truss”; in that it does satisfy the formulaic requirements for a truss: m = 2n – 3, where m is the total number of members and n is the total number of nodes. It does not function “dynamically” as a truss, for the same reason.
