diagrid-structures-systems-connections-detailsBy (author) Terri Meyer Boake

Diagrids are advanced framing systems composed of diagonal steel grids. Developed a decade ago for spectacular buildings like the Swiss Re (“the Gherkin”) in London, diagrid structures connect a breathtaking appearance with tangible advantages: a massive reduction in material use, a gain of available floor surface area and more flexibility. For the first time, this book gives a comprehensive account of the key aspects of this structural system.
