    Primary Examiner-Leslie Braun Attorney, Agent, or Firm-Brumbaugh, Graves, Donohue & Raymond [57] ABSTRACT A bisectional architectural structure, suitable for resi dential, commercial or megastructural use, divides in ter?oor space into separate functional zones, and sys tematically orients major ?oor levels according to the axii of two separate structural grid systems which bisect each other in every dimension. As an apartment build ing or the like, it may comprise a plurality of vertical modules arranged one on top of the other about a com mon vertical utility core. Each module includes four ?oors which are accessible from the utility core by a corkscrew-shaped walkway surrounding the utility core. The utility core is provided with at least two elevators, a ?rst of which has a plurality of door open ings for servicing each ?oor. One or more additional elevators in the core have one door per vertical module. The bisectional architectural structure is articulated at its periphery by a plurality of triangular cantilevers, each forming a triangularly shaped extension of at least two successive ?oors which act, in combination with an integral support truss, as a unitary device in cantilever. As a detached multi-?oor structural unit, the triangular cantilever may be prefabricated in such a way as to be originally self-supporting, and then hoisted into place and attached to the building at the construction site as an independent appendage to the main building struc ture.
