Architectural students at the Tokyo University of Science developed an experimental, extremely lightweight, load-bearing structure for a temporary pavilion. The 26-metre-long, up to 7,5-metre-wide and 4,25-metre-high volume is self-supporting and comprises only two kinds of component: the metal bearing elements and a space-enclosing skin consisting of an 0,7-mm membrane of elastic polyester fabric.

Holy Austin Rock, Kinver, Staffordshire - Homes in the rock. From the 1600's until the 1960's whole families lived comfortably in cave dwellings hewn into the soft sandstone along Kinver Edge. The rock houses here at Holy Austin Rock are among the finest in Europe. Eleven families lived here in a warren of whitewashed rooms on three levels. Now looked after by The National Trust.
