Tere are a few on youtube showing more conventional styles. Great idea but I would like to see reinforcing bar in there.

Thanks Bender...

That is pretty neat. ..I got the impression from reading the article that they would be pouring the walls, grouting the things. It looks like the sections have webs (?) and that would probably work as r bar...

Being plastic, or other materials that simulate plastic, it would bend instead of break. Not a bad idea, they will probably be shooting things into space using this same tech...The world, she be a changing..

I thought the same thing, but I think I saw/read a couple of items in the website.

1. the concrete is fiber reinforced as well as having elastic additives.
2. rebar is stuffed down the hollow sections and grouted in as the wall
progress's.
