I envision multiple options using cardboard as described above. One option would be standardized blocks which would possibly tend towards limited thinking and limited designs. Cardboard can be manufactured in standardized panels.

I would think that cardboard could also be molded in an infinite variety of forms. I recall seeing cardboard sculpture somewhere years ago that was molded in a variety of ways.

If I remember correctly, Buckminster Fuller also had invented some cardboard geodesic structures.

The cardboard house mentioned in the post above had circular cylinders for posts. I see no reason why these sould not be made on a larger scale, even to the point of becoming circular rooms, or elliptical rooms, or "Bibao rooms."

It might even follow the designs of some Per Corell type structures.

The possibilities seem unlimited to me.
