Straw blocks shuldn't be any problem whatsoever in terms of projecting building volumes anyway. I rather have "Green" to be cheaper than just better, but how can this even be an issue with such clever architecture applications avaible ; you will know exactly anything about each equal block , as if that shuld mean anything.
From right start you can stamp the seeds to form this particular hay-block if this is what you want, -------- you can harvest different colors hay even gen manipulated and display a pattern of colors if decorating suddenly shuld deal with architecture , guess just another lost artform, today Icons must be bird houses , steel rod meshwork wallvise and floor vise. a horisantal and vertical meshwork getting bored. Romans want the right ansver, then when you bring a promise of a bright future and new jobs, you are mistaken for a Hippie.
Straw blocks is just another building material you can se as sheet material and therefor fit for 3D-H framework assembly ; extrude the thickness of the 3D-H shell forming this building, to hold standard size straw blocks , smooth the surface with a pair of hay sissors, and reuse the cutoff , then plaster the outside and prepare the inside with air chanals for outside air entering thru the isolating hay , ---------- while being heated ,the outside air will expand and dry out the actural building material, betewwn the assembly framework structure, this way you for once take advanteage of Digital options, producing the actural building assembly, directly from 3D CAD drawings.
This is different than the aproach of today's architect applications.
Just emagine the graphic at the top, with a thicker 3D-H shell , even that will be chipwood sheet.
A highrise will be steel or whatever exiting material, if doing it better is a part of it, Green isn't out of reach of 3D-H, but it seem Romans don't want Green either, as if not making money isn't enough ;))
