By our present understanding of structures some things can be done, and others no, or musn't out of sheer structural unreasonability.

In any case it is perfectly possible to build a 3 fašades building without anything at the center as long provision of an adequate structure anywhere else (and along the roof, of course) is made. Columns at the fašades and a roof of enough depth and appropriate setup can solve the thing. For whichever the span exists a solution in the rectangular plan, the solution is amenable to use in the triangular plan.

Hnce, I conclude, the more significant inconvenience is that spans if understood one-wat vary, and this may result in some structural and constructive inefficiencies. This is not the case whenever you use membrane or 3D structures where more proficient use of the materials can be made, yet some bigger difficulty of construction than for the rectangular plan will be assumed by most.
