The sparked and off the top of my dome thought was what if we had woven metal beams in buildings in earthquake zones that could take the impact better!
I was thinking of how an upside down woven basket would be flexible and resumes its original shape, on a larger scale, would it be effective against collapse!
A light alternative to cement would be a great boon, however unlikly, then again manufatured plastic microblocks (MicroTetrahedrons) used like cement may be the answer, how to get them to GEL together as a block is a different problem again, cost effective probably not!
Its Just A Wondering As A Casual Muse, So Dont Get Too Excited!
