Hi Claire, it's a great topic. As you illustrated under point 8, by fusing outer circle with orthogonal internal walls, we can facilitate constructibility. I am also interested in the circular shape when it comes to high-rise buildings. The tendency in high-rise construction is in even taller skyscrapers, which makes building more exposed to wind loads. The circular shape with adaptive envelope seems to be the most logical for different wind directions.
