Abstract
Forty-four example projects are described in the following pages to reflect recent developments of spatial structures in China. Some aspects of design concept, structural design, details and construction, joints or connections, etc. are introduced in these project descriptions. There are four groups of project descriptions: Group A is related to the projects of double and multiple layer grids; Group B is related to the projects of lattice shells; Group C is related to the projects of tension and membrane structures; and Group D is related to the projects of hybrid structures and miscellaneous.
