Abstract: The high rise buildings with glass curtain walls is the most recent trend in architecture, that enable to see through the facade of the building. The conventional curtain walls act as supporting structure, which usually contains load bearing frames, profile systems, claddings, fastening systems etc. Functionally curtain walls resists air and water infiltration. Such curtain walls are constructed from glass, stainless steel and aluminium. While developing the facades as the supporting structure for the curtain walls, suspended cable net structures are developed, that can employ tensioned steel cable as a primary structural element. The paper briefly describe the design procedure, boundary conditions, pretensioning of cables in the cable net design. The paper is concluded with the related asthetics and cost which are the major factors for selection of glass in the commercial buildings.
