^ I don't see much potential for adaptive reuse with the slope of the floors. With 3 m floor height maybe could do an urban farmers market type thing with room for services? Artist studios higher up? Maybe apartments?
IIRC, the reusable parts are the elevator cores and end flat parts. The idea would be to take out everything above the "platform" in the middle and build up a new podium and towers on either end at some point. Cool idea, but will be difficult to say that it couldn't have been done easier or more reusable in another format (e.g. to your points on including sloped floors etc.)I'm not sure about the adaptive re-use either. I like that they were thinking outside the box, but how practical will it be in the end? If they had have built it with flat levels and angled ramps connecting floors, it would be more practical IMO. You could then use it for almost anything.
