Family: None

First Claim:
Show all 6 claims
What we claim is:     1. A massive polyhedral framework for supporting artificial lands and buildings comprising:
  • standardized main beam members;
  • auxiliary beam members;
  • land beam members;
  • reinforcing beam members;
  • artificial land surface materials;
  • connecting means for releasably connecting said beam members together;
  • upper and lower grids formed by connecting said main beam members through said connecting means in the longitudinal and lateral directions at intervals of a predetermined span, said upper and lower grids being connected by said auxiliary beam members through said connecting means to form a number of three-dimensional spaces continuously disposed two-dimensionally, said two land beam members being provided along the diagonal lines extending through said three-dimensional spaces, the intersecting points of said land beam members being connected to the joints of said main and auxiliary beam members through said reinforcing beam members, said land surface materials being provided on said land beam members to form said artificial lands dividing said spaces in two, said artificial lands being disposed stepwise; and
  • tie members for connecting a plurality of said upper and lower grids together to form the polyhedral framework provided with said stepwise-disposed artificial lands, and
  • wherein a plurality of said upper and lower grids are connected in a gabled style by said tie members.
