Combining different functions in so-called multi functional buildings poses the problem on how to deal with the different modular dimensions of the spaces. How can these different functions with often different structural configurations be combined, without limiting the functional use. When these different options and combinations of functions are possible within the same structural grid, future changes in use are expected to be more likely. This study investigates possible solutions and attempts to optimize the structural grid for these multi functional buildings.
