Urban population has seen a rapid growth in the past decade and the consequent pressure on limited space have consequently influenced the residential development in the city.

As the height of the building increases, the structural system that resists the gravitational loads are less important compared to the lateral load resisting system.
Diagrid Structures have become one of the innovative & adaptable structures to building for 3 decades. Various loads acting on the building has to be given and particularly the wind load and seismic loads. Diagonal Grid systems are capable of resisting the gravity loads and provide lateral stability.
From the study it is observed that most of the lateral load is resisted by inclined diagrid columns on the periphery, while gravity load is resisted by both the internal columns and peripheral diagonal columns. So, internal columns need to be designed for vertical load only. Due to the increase in lever arm of peripheral diagonal columns, diagrid structural system is more effective in lateral load resistance. Lateral and gravity load is resisted by axial force in diagonal members on the periphery of the structure, which makes the system more effective. Diagrid structural system provides more flexibility in planning interior space and facade of the building. The results obtained also states that the displacement by the diagonal grid is just 50% of the permissible limit.

Diagrid is a form of framework consisting a series of triangulated truss system. It is formed by the intersection of diagonal and horizontal components.
