The graphic uploaded was to be used to suggest the use of steel roofing for other porpus than just roofs and cheap walls in slum arears.
The idear was, that instead of using this material the tradisional way I was about to suggest a few structures ,where steel roofing or fiber roofing would perform quite different and produce a quite different result, than when you just use these sheet materials the way you are used to se.
The structure you se in the link would easyli be produced with this material and as side effect the wave form will offer a very simple option in terms of assembly slot fixture in a 3D-H frame structure ,but this detail was not uploaded as the discussion of using plain cheap sheet material, to produce a different design with the aid of a modern building technike did not catch on.
With the link ,there are an early sketch to show the idear of producing the framework for a small building in this material we mainly think of, as somthing you could use for roof or walls, but the project is not worked thru and just by doubling the frames a very different result.
