Edge Definition - 2

To cope with programmatic considerations (hypothetical Google office tower), floor plates undulate up and down, merge and terminate to provide more floorspace or ceiling height. This becomes the contextual application to an otherwise dull gridded tower. Structurally speaking, these edge definitions also become tension cables which hold out against outward moving floorplates.
The yellow highlighted parts are the 'open' floorspaces. A 3D view of the undulating edge definition using mass customisable components is shown below.
Next steps: optimising the component and fabrication techniques!
