This reminds me-

The WTC required a damping system to compensate actively for the
oscillations of wind or seismic vibration; does your "honeycomb" system have any elasticity or is it a totally rigid structure? If so, how could it be scaled up to skyscraper size/ Would it sway more or need mass-dampers?
