Suspension    Domes


Cable-stayed roofs are more common than ones based on the suspension bridge pattern.

The pattern suffers from many of the same disadvantages that cable-stayed bridges suffer from.

In particular, they are sub-optimal as a means of attaining very large spans because the cables tend to apply cumulative compression forces to the structure they are supporting.
