An idea worth spreading
With netting, sheets of fabric, and simple sewing techniques anyone can create form-work for concrete, grout, sand and microbes structures.
Imagine tubes of fabric, netting sewn within as reinforcement for both the concrete and the form-work. Tubes connected to other tubes by netting to temporarily hold the desired structure. These tubes, in all shapes and sizes pumped or filled with fibrous concrete similar to inflating a balloon animal with air.
These structures are light weight, stay-in-place forms, that can be dropped (prefabricated) into any area, inflated with air to unfold the form-work for layout. Then strategically filled with concrete. A new solid structure, ready for use by the next day.
Applying higher order fibers and high tech fabrics can add engineered, calculable strengths where needed. Specialized self-consolidating concrete, ceramic, and clay blends can enhance the properties of these structures.

My TED story
I am in my infancy as the TED story goes, however, I am an avid, ravenous researcher and student of the TED talks and auxiliary features: As well as web threads relating to such talks.
