the main and most impressive elevations of the building. It also focuses on some issues related to high requirements placed on façade systems in terms of insulation from environmental conditions and comfort of the future users of the building. Due to the fact that there are many materials that can be used for the main structural elements (columns, spandrel beams and ribs) of load-bearing façade structures, the authors of the article attempted to do a multi-criteria comparative analysis of three different materials (safety glass, glulam and rolled steel) of a 6-meter-long reference column. The set of criteria, consisting of twelve elements, was adopted for comparative analysis. A combination of two methods was selected for performing the multi-criteria analysis: a geometric method of spider’s network and a mathematical method of the adjusted index of summation.
