Application of the Diagrid System in Modern High-Rise Buildings
In the architecture of high-rise buildings there are a multitude of architectural forms, such as twisted, tilted, tapered
and free forms. The article describes the characteristics of the diagrid system and its applicability in the construction of tall
buildings in relation to other modern construction systems: braced-tube and outrigger. The authors attempt to evaluate the
effectiveness of this system for various geometric forms. The characteristics of buildings with very complex geometry and that
use the diagrid system are presented.
