This work is devoted to the use of load-bearing elements made of translucent materials. To confirm the relevance of the study, regulatory materials and similar practices of using various materials as vertical and horizontal bearing elements were studied. Experimental experience was conducted to identify high indicators of the required characteristics of elements, which are considered as independent supporting structures. The object of the research is modern translucent materials. These materials have proven themselves as walling and auxiliary elements, their use as a supporting structure is not so important. However, in the course of the study it was revealed that translucent materials can be used as bearing elements without loss of strength and stability of the structure, which allows to visually facilitate the architectural appearance of the building. The subject of research is the influence of translucent supporting structures on the architectural shaping and the formation of the urban environment, by means of using the most visually lightweight structures. As a result of the study, it was concluded that it is possible and attractive to use translucent structures as load-bearing elements; however, there are drawbacks in a number of technological limitations, which directly affects the advantage of choosing not to benefit from translucent materials.
