does the Big bang theory address the statement in Gen 1; 1 the creation of Space structure?

There is actually no way to scientifically prove any origin story. We cannot submit a 1-time occurrence to the 'scientific method.'
IMO, it doesn't matter how or why, just that we are here.
FYI: I'm a Christian, mathematician, and nuclear physicist.

No. The Genesis story is pure fiction. Utter nonsense to boot

Maybe.... When Genesis was written, the concepts people had of cosmology were extremely limited. "In the beginning, God created heaven and the Earth..." With the understanding people had of physics at the time, that simple statement was probably enough of an explanation for them.
In contrast, we look at the theory of the Big Bang, when out of nothing, the universe was created... eventually to form particles, then galaxies and stars, and eventually, the Earth.
Loosely, they say the same thing; the Bible assigns the act to God, the Big Bang says there *was* an act, but it's indeterminate of what exactly happened - we can only see the aftermath, in which Earth was formed.
To the people of 2500-3000 years ago, with a near-zero concept of atoms, gravity, and the forces involved, "God created heaven and the Earth" may be the only physics they'd need to know...

Depends if you prefer Catholic cosmology or Jewish cosmology.

It is hard to draw similarities between modern scientific observations and theories in cosmology with some 3000 year old scriptures written by uneducated people with no understanding of the universe.

The big bang theory and creationism both claim that the universe came out of nothing. One merely states that there is a creator involved.
