ive heard from an architect that the lifts work by connecting through the buildings. i.e. to get to the top of the middle building you will have to take the elevator from a smaller building, then the smaller building is actually attached to the taller one, so you have to go across to the taller one and take the lift up from there from the current floor to the higher one. very confusing!
