Diagrids represent one of the emerging structural systems employed worldwide for the construction of high-rise buildings. Their potential relies on the peculiar architectural effect and their great lateral stiffness. Because of the modular nature of the diagrid triangular element, optimization processes are usually carried out to assess the best arrangement of the external diagonals in order to enhance the structural performance while using the lowest amount of structural material. In this contribution, we make use for the first time of the desirability function approach to investigate the optimal geometry of the diagrid system. A 168-meter tall building, with four different floor shapes, is analyzed, and the inclination of the external diagonals is varied between 35° and 84 The desirability function approach is applied to find the most desirable geometry to limit both the lateral and torsional deformability, the amount of employed material as well as the construction complexity of the building. A sensitivity analysis is also carried out to investigate the influence of the individual desirability weight on the obtained optimal geometry. The effect of the building height is finally evaluated, through the investigation of sets of 124-, 210- A nd 252-meter tall diagrid structures.
