You ask what could be more minimalistic to support a building but air, I say water , please refere the link at the bottom ;))

Still I don't realy catch the point of a floor plane being any topic even, as floor planes requier vertical being 90 deg. to horisontal ; well floor plans acturly reflect the need to be able to calculate between planes using standard calculations , then if an air membrame shuld hold anything this ask gravitation and even in non gravitation you need sections -- floor plans --- to describe what is acturly to be build, even floors would make less sense being quite minimalistic in terms of sense, in this concept.
Anyway you just given me yet another argument about 3D-Honeycomb ; with this you need only two intersecting planes where tradisionaly you need 3 planes to describe a structure, both in terms of "floor plans" that with 3D-H is replaced with sections in only two planes :))

Now minimalistic seen ,3D-H seem to overcome the troubles you will se ,placing floor plans or even horisontal planes in a drawing of a computer mesh structure like Bilbao ; just emagine Disney new concert hall described as a technical plan drawing , this would be a useless drawing with dots and U's or wierd "H's" making no sense showing an U iron or H iron , angled seen from strait top down, ------ here 3D-H acturly help, as nothing but the full-size actural cutting line, to produce the building element is there and nothing else --- or rather the way 3D-H is repersented as the actural outlines of building elements, will make more sense than a computer mesh structure sectioned horisontal and vertical.
But this is proberly where you ask for a defination about minimalism, not in terms of getting an easy result but one that acturly work, acturly work with computers and production.
