Whatever the geometry is still geometry, Per ... I can understand your enthusiasm of an inventor or master of a technology in its promotion. I can see well the advantages of light penetrable stiff enough structures, adaptable as concrete to shapes etc, and so I see interesting prospective applications for what you promote. For example the distributed structural material and connections are likely to be quite good a dissipator of earthquake input energy.

This said, as with any inventor, what is more likely is that the idea gets the place of one more between others. Alternative technologies are developing, say nanotechnologies, that really pretend to place atom per atom where wanted. On the other hand other discoveries of the past, such modulation, repetition, economy of prefabricated equal parts and much of what formally already experimented are likely to remain, in my view. You have had even to rely in mimicking statues of the olden past to convince us renuent barbars, heh. You can also see that the technology of the macrocells whateverway built is crude when compared to electrodeposition/atomic sinterization likely to produce devices/components of better engineered configuration than anything still somewhat basically mechanical.

In short, Per, I am encouraging you to consider as well the other standing alternatives as very valid options for many of the architectural issues you will be mmeting in you career, this wihtout having at all to reject the ideas you show to love so much.
