"SKELSION" is a structural system consisting of tension strings combined with a skeleton. The "SKELSION" was developed for cases in which the BSS is supported by relatively thin columns. The wind-resisting and earthquake-resisting efficiency is improved by inserting a tension strings. In this paper, the loading test results obtained by using a small-scale model, the parametric study by making analyses, and the introduction of the design and the construction method for an actual structure, regarding the structural characteristics of the "SKELSION"', are investigated.
