This study analyzes the four composition elements : profile, anchorage and connection, material and member rigidity, stability, as the main composition design elements of flexure structure systems, in order to explore possibilities for more various structure designs in architectures with flexure structure system. It also examines typical design methods that use the mentioned four composition elements. At the results, this research presents an understanding of the differences between funicular shape and non-funicular shape and mechanical features of the shapes in the profile element, regarding to the ratio of rise height to span length(f/l). Also, the typical design methods are presented for the designable usages of the hinge joints and the fix joints, and for the applications of member rigidity expressed by the index of the ratio of member depth to span length(d/l). And it was presented that connection styles, addition of brace members, placement of shear walls are the main design methods in the stability element. This data would be useful to architectural designs concerning integrated design with structures.
