Thank you Ken for saying something that a lot of people here I am sure would like to say, but none of us are so rude to say it. While it is nice to see exploration in a new type of strucural method, I have not saw any evidence from Per that this has gone any further that a 3-d model. I have not seen anything to show me how two segments of this honeycomb structure attach to each other, or what is the physical makeup of one of these segments. How would the structure be enclosed? How would you incorporate glazing into one of your honeycomb structures? I am not criticizing the idea of these structures being buildable, but I am criticzing the fact that none of what I have reviewed posted on this web site shows a buildable building, or takes my mind any firther than seeing it as a fantasy structure. Not only one or two, but dozens of these are shown on these forums. When I read a new post by Per I expect to see one of these superstructures taken to another level, but I never get surprised, its always the same old. Get into this construction system a little more and show people here how things would really go together, not just what it could look like.
