I wasn't questioning the overall structural system, i know how that works, see Swiss Re by Norman Foster or Green Bird by Future Systems.
its just that on one side of that render the cross bracing is interrupted and i'm not sure if this desirable , because i think it breaks up the lattice meaning it isnt a total structural net like the aforementioned buildings.
i think rather than hanging the floors totally from the outer structure you can support them by the central core (as in the foster building) which allows the outer frame to be lighter.
