The diagrid structures are used as a supporting structure in increasing number of skyscrapers on the world. The article presents the characteristics of this construction system. The various geometric conditions of the mesh influencing the method of transferring forces were analyzed. The principles of shaping diagrid structures were discussed. Examples of realizations and design solutions have been presented.

Keywords: high-rise buildings; structure systems; diagrid structures.
