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.
