Okay, I have to ask, having never seen an explanation.... If you are going to build a very tall structure or one with very long horizontal spans, how are your 3dh structures of thin sheet metal going to support the weight or the compressive loads? It doesn't matter how perfectly you load 100kg on an aluminum soda can, if you only touch the side wall under such a load, the entire can collapses 90+ %.

Please answer only this question as simply and directly as possible, with out the rehtoric about seeing a new way to build etc. etc.

This question has been put to you many times, yet your explanation has never been satisfactory. You always digress to a philosophical monologue. This is why you are harshly criticized.

I have spoken against those who berate you without intelligent comments in their attacks, but I support the call from those who have asked you repeatedly to explain your methods in a substantive way.

The popular advice from many celebrities these days is: "don't give up on your dreams". This advice is counter productive without also advising that we develop a plan to make our dreams come true and then work diligently to implement the plan, step by step.

Your dream appears to have no plan, or it plunges headlong through the questions of those who are in a position to help you. Answer the real questions from the architectural community and, if your ideas have a basis in reality, you may be able to advance them beyond the conceptual imaging stage.

Please do not respond to the issues of personal attacks, dreams, reality, diligent work, status quo, celebrity, conceptual imaging, or any topic other than the structural question.
