This twins in hollow steel-tube 2 Plane assembly framework can be flusjed by a water tank on the roof, in case of fire, and the frames would be able to move, instead of exploding the structure, ---- even after floors are interfrated each frame.
Ofcaurse you are right about bad works and safety and this is what it is about, not just providing the service for the people using the houses but also make it more profatable building in a relevant structure.
Still in the other end of the architectural sceme, there are designers fighting new tools thru a conservative industrie ans academics still think they must fight autodidacts ; ----- like fighting the army of skilled craftmen doing modern steelworks, rather than promoting a brand new and _better_ building method.
Better to tell that new methods change a lot of that you describe, as with better building methods you will be much more skilled to use the obvious new technologies ,as you say ecucation is needed.
Still you need to se that taking out the trusses ,knees or bolts all together, with a new Digital building methods where these are not required _must_ be a better option, beside as you say, boxworks steel-grids do _not_ restand earthquakes but Zip fractions thru the mesh like snapping the intire steel grid with huge forces ; then what is wrong with 2 plane assembly frameworks where members move freely supported by all others. ---- This is what I ask you to remember, critisising the bad education and etics.
Anyway as long as you know, that much of the dirty works you tell, is acturly _not_ made just better, by the tradisional 3 Plane projecting, I be glad.
As you can se in the graphics, water cooled steel towers, even twins , is possible if all you ask is to be able to flood particular arears of the steel framework .
