Polygonal slabs are arranged in a column with equal spacing. The size of each slab is proportional to the sine of its elevation, so that the envelope of the slabs is a sinusoid of revolution. The figure can be regarded as the framework of a building. You can vary the number of floors, the shape and the thickness of floor slabs, and the building height. For structural stability, a basement of equal depth is included in the design.
