I heard that the engineering was unique for it's time in that weight was supported by exterior columns.

It was - floors basically suspended with a main column and tie points to the structure. Don't forget the shitty fireproofing, I'm really surprised the things didn't have issues before that.

Regardless, the whole collapse is really fishy. That's all I know.
