Citaat Pelli:

“In a building of this scale, moving people around is a major challenge. The designers came up with an interesting way of addressing the problem. At the main entrances, people who are going to even-numbered floors can simply board an elevator. People going to odd-numbered floors must ride an escalator one floor up to board the second level of the very same elevators. This way a single elevator car can serve two floors simultaneously”.
