The picture below shows a wall from the 9th floor of a luxury service apartment that has been knocked down and to be replace by steel columns for facade improvement.
This is strictly prohibited unless it is a non-load bearing wall (i.e. Brickwall or Plaster Walls). This is because the #structural floors above is supported by this exact wall that has to transfer it's load to the foundation, and having a knocked down wall to be replaced by another configuration of column in between will mean the transfer of load is not direct through the #reinforcedconcrete column due to difference in stiffness causing other #structural members to take the additional load.
This may cause other structural members to fail because it might be withstanding loads that exceeds the assume loading designed by the structural engineer of the building.
Before making a decision to knock down a wall in your home, consult a certified engineer to prevent any unanticipated event from happening.
