A structural lattice includes a rectangular base defined by four periphery beams, and two non-diagonal beams that divide the rectangular base in four quadrants.  The structural lattice further includes a diagonal reinforcement strut system overlaid on the rectangular base and having at least two intersecting sets of diagonal beams forming an open-and-closed cell architecture.
