Abstract
In this paper, the structural design of two buildings located at the station square of the local city is introduced. It is common that two buildings have large spaces. At an exhibition hall, we designed economical and unique shaped steel truss that is connected to architectural design by using diagonal grid. At a convention hall, we designed economical steel structure of large space in 1st floor by using large wall girders in upper floor. The design of the ceiling is important recently in Japan. In this building, the ceiling is supported by the steel secondary members those are connected with steel truss members.
