Even if half true, every contractor and design-build team worldwide would clamor to your door.

Perhaps I don't understand your meaning. If I describe the strength of a material in a second order tensor of second rank, exactly how does your method operate on the tensor to reinforce requisite strengthes in the appropriate directions?

Secondly, if 4 times as rigid in those directions, and now pinned, how do you handle deformation and expansion/contraction forces?

Thirdly, Most materials fail in shear and codified assemblies tend to promote componentized partitions of the structure, so as to allow tradesmen to construct the structures with only a smattering of engineering intuition. How does your method promote safety in construction, whereas current methods seem to be well formed to accomodate this aspect of feasibility.

Fourth, Once constructed, maintenance seems more convoluted and costly and again nearly requiring professional guidance for the most mundane repairs.

Intuitively, I tend to think somebody has simply become infatuated with finite element analytical tool appearances, while having some experience with poprivets and sheet metal. In some situations, very nice. As a panacea, LEGO Blocks are also very functional.
