Abstract
The paper contains some proposals of space structures shaping for needs of constructions of large span roofs and a few proposals of forming of structural systems for high-rise buildings. This paper is a review of these groups of structural systems proposed by the author in the last few years. Space structures designed as constructions for large span roofs are composed of bar modules. These modules are of simple shapes and they consist of usually short bars. Structural systems for tall buildings are shaped by using general principles of forming of space structures having into consideration at the same time all the basic structural requirements for structure of high-rise building. In the both cases double- and multi-layer forms of space structures are used as the backgrounds for shaping structural systems for these types of buildings.
