Aside from the dangers of live steam, one aspect I neglected to mention, but which you've touched on here, is the weight added by thousands of gallons of water. So, here, again, your water-filled structure doesn't quite cut it. What I was proposing, though, is using your CAD/CAM extruded honeycomb structure, but instead of using steel as the material, I would use structural ceramic material, which has high strength, as well as high fire resistance. It is also a material that lens itself well to extrusion into any shape.
