Structural mesh covers are in fact thin-walled rigid spatial designs with a curvilinear surface. They allow to block big spaces without use of internal support, but only due to the self-bearing features of the design. Rigidity of covers is reached not at the expense of increase in mass of metal, but only due to change of geometry at engineering calculations. By means of spatial covers unusual and difficult shapes of facades and roofs of buildings are created. Such designs were widely adopted in progressive architecture of the XXI century. Mesh overlappings covers, towers covers and difficult mesh amorphous designs are used.

First-ever mesh covers - overlappings of double curvature of V. G. Shukhov on VSW, 1897 (see World Experience gallery)
