If I'm understanding you correctly, Per, what you're saying is that your honeycomb structure supplies the entire framwork for a building, and that all you need to complete it are the various panels that are used a skin over the honeycomb framework, right?

It sounds like a great idea in theory, but I'm wondering how it will be acheived in a world firmly entrenched in using "standard" materials, components and construction techniques. Traditionally, when a construction method is new or radical, it is difficult and expensive to find contractors who are competent enough to work with it. That's why ideas like geodesic domes and earth-sheltered buildings haven't gained much popularity. The average builder doesn't have the knowledge or equipment to handle it, and those who do are very expensive.
