Hi Manuel, A similar project called Peacebuildings has been designed to do what you are suggesting with the added benefit of being earthquake proof. Check out the design http://peacebuildings.org/method.html You may find it worth contacting the engineer, Graham Brown, who developed the technology. It can all be 3d printed.

Pat commented on Use Star Trek Tech to save the world

Thank you Shane. They tried in vain to implement the system in Haiti but could not get past the problems within the bureaucracy to get it installed. It would have been a huge benefit there and proven the systems value many times over. In order to solve problems anywhere, honest people need to rise up and act for the benefit of not only themselves but for that of others. The best technology in the world cannot wipe out corruption. The teaching of values in schools and human rights must be done for students to learn respect. It is up to young people to learn how to build a better world that will survive the problems of today in order to realize a greater tomorrow. It's disheartening to think the solutions already exist to solve the problems of access to clean water, energy and education. We must see ourselves as global citizens of one planet and endeavor to create the will to stamp out poverty and corruption. It can be done. People just need to be taught how to work together to accomplish it.
