Composite and Hybrid Structures CHS provide many advantages over those employing conventional systems. Since the available design codes in Japan do not cover these systems, the current Japanese Building Standard Law requires detailed experimental and/or analytical studies before the building permit for a structure with CHS can be issued.
Concrete-Filled Steel Tubes CFTs are composite members consisting of an steel tube infilled with concrete. In current international practice, CFT columns are used in the primary lateral resistance systems of both braced and unbraced building structures. There exist applications in Japan and Europe where CFTs are also used as bridge piers.

This is a list of buildings that once held the title of tallest building in Japan. From its completion in 1958 and until the opening of the Tokyo Skytree in 2011, Tokyo Tower retained the title of tallest structure in Japan, aside from various guyed masts that were built in
COMPOSOLITE ® is a patented advanced composite building panel system suitable for major load bearing structural applications. The modular construction system consists of a small number of interlocking fiber reinforced polymer FRP structural components produced by the pultrusion process.
Due to the characteristics of the lightweight and high stiffness of carbon fiber composite materials, they are widely used as reinforcing materials in building structures, pier of expressways and Shinkansen bullet trains. Recently, they began to be used as earthquake-proof or its supportive materials for buildings.

Mixed structures. Reinforced concrete infills positively connected to steel structure=> composite Moment resisting frame with infills structurally disconnected from frame on lateral and top sides: design as steel structures. Infills in contact: frame-infill interaction to take into account.
Generally, a building can be defined as an enclosed structure intended for human occupancy. However, a building includes the structure itself and nonstructural components e.g., cladding, roofing, interior walls and ceilings, HVAC systems, electrical systems permanently attached to and supported by the structure.
Japan, BRBs have been employed in more than two hundred buildings as ductile bracing members or hysteretic dampers. Distributed in steel frames, these members dissipate the introduced seismic energy, and minimize the damages of main structures and building facilities Fig.14 .
· The structure of this residence is composed of Japanese cedar columns, fashioned from from processed forest thinnings. The composite columns and beams eliminate the need for heavy load-bearing walls. The exposed, angled, structure creates a rich and varied interior, visible through the end of the building, which is fully glazed.
