This design study is of a scheme for a
                  very tall tower with a pyramidal space truss core
                  (open from top to bottom) using cable extensively as
                  a structural system. The variation between 5 floor
                  modules is an idea about tower articulation I
                  learned while working with Paul Rudolph, 1991. Pen
