Shell, space trusses, membrane, tension and deployable structures, which make the best use of their material through their spatial geometry and are frequently applied to space structures, have been rapidly developed as lightweight structural components for architectures on the earth, in the second half of 20th centuries. In the talk, histories of development of those type of structures, starting from examples of applications to some numerical theories for analysis, mainly focusing on the applications to large span architectures, will be briefly reviewed. Further, state of the arts of some of those structures will be quickly given.
