How do you mean the structure is from sheet material?
the whole structure is cut from a sheet? not to sure about that.
or each facet of the structural members is cut from a sheet, this is possible using Rhinoceros and has already been done.
hanging the floors from a central core allows the the outer frame to be more lightweight. Making the core more sturdy has advantages in terms of fireproofing aswell.
If its a high rise the windows don't usually need to open, its normally all self contained and air conditioned. Although using more paasive systems would be better much like the Green Bird project by Future Systems, which has an advanced version of the structure you show and incorporates more sustainable technology.
