summary It is necessary for an architect to engage closely with structural design, to interpret their design idea thoroughly, and it requires carefully collaboration between architect and engineer. The structural performance based design is not only to obey structure principle but to explore different possibilities of engineer and architectural innovation. Architects could apply this method in the earlier stage of design, and it could provide the efficient solution for structure, create a new spatial experience and further improve the construction quality in the later phase of development. In comparison to structural performance-based design in history, the computational technology has made it possible for architects to implement further the structural knowledge in more dynamic and sophisticated environment. This paper will discuss the history development and current transformation of this method. Three research project will explain the current experimental design process and back the idea of this method.
