A cable structure in the architecture field has a characteristic of being equipped with tremendously diversified functions, shapes and systems. As is seen in the design recommendation recently issued by the AIJ, data concerning designs andanalyses of materials and the cable structures has been well prepared. Accordingly, cables have been used in the construction of space structures as an important material. This paper describes the future development of the cable structure through thearrangement of subjects necessary to be solved for design and execution. Furthermore, results of past studies and real structures will be introduced in this paper.
