Billy find information on the Hong Kong Bank designed by Norman Foster
(Architect) and Ove Arup (Engineers).  The building is very similar to what
you describe and is well published.  Should provide an excellent learning
reference.  As too the best materials and layout, what do YOU think?  You
must work through the process of evaluating potential layout and material
choices and form your own opinions.

A couple of excellent references are "Structural Design of Tall Buildings"
by Taranath and "Earthquake Resistant Design" by Dowrick.

Enjoy
