A/C design failures

In a two-storey condo (or house), if you have the air intake for the central A/C system in the basement, and the second (e.g. top) floor vents are on the floor level, then good luck with being able to not freeze on the first floor / basement, and not sweat on the second floor (even if the A/C is running all day long, and the outside temperatures are just below 30°C). Now it makes perfect sense why, one way or another, the top floor has to have an active air intake, and why is it so common that the vents on the top floor are coming from the ceiling. It's physics, stupid!
