I have been working on designing details of the National Museum of Qatar by jean nouvel. There are two types of grids in discs one is radial and the other one is the orthogonal grid.
Attached is the logic I used to model the same which is too long and not the right way I guess.
It would be great if someone can help with modeling this Structural system like the way it looks.
From conceptual design through design development, Rhino was used as a main design tool, and then AutoCAD was tried as a documentation tool. The design was so intricate it was difficult to obtain an accurate view on how all the different disks would be constructed as well as ensuring the information would be clearly communicated to the construction team.

I’m trying to figure out ways to make this structural system so my question was is there any way in karamba to do that, as its an structural design plugin.
I have to make I section following the geometry of disk which you can see in definition and pictures uploaded.
If you are looking to just model the geometry of the structural system, then you do not need Karamba for this. Karamba can be used to analyse the structure to see how it performs, but it will not allow you to model precise geometry as shown in the image.
