Abstract
Space-frame structures require structural safety and beautiful architectural space. The key element is the connections. Steel forging connections are important design requirements; however they are rarely used for buildings in Japan. This paper presents design examples and describes the potential of spaceframe structures using steel forging at connections. The design examples are the Satellite Building and Glass Dome in the expansion project of Tokyo International Airport international Passenger Terminal, which opened in September 2014.
