Anyway I'm not a proffessional so can't give you any formula (if there is any).
I love the digram its amazing, I think its very smart and informative.What about the end of very top pillars which they stick out, are they floors too?! they look nice for a penthouse apartments!
I think, but I could be wrong, that not many towers are higher in floors because I would imagine that it will cost significantly more for more floors on the top. If the plan from the beginning to put a structure for a 60 floor then it will cost enormously higher than the structure for 50 floor. Also the cost of special cranes and labour lefting the materials to the higher floors and all other special stuff. I think if it wasnt very costy then we would see alot of 100 floors towers in every city in the world which have 30 floors buildings. but even 50 floor buildings arent that many on earth!!.
