From generals to particulars: strength of the triangle applied to easily found materials. Low-cost solution to basic shelter. A diamond shape cut from a cardboard box at a fold as a basic repeating "molecule" to build tetrahedral and half octahedra, "woven" together and attached with duct tape and glue forming wall/roof framing- clad in sheetrock/siding/roofing tar. As well as residual cardboard ground up for insulation in cavities.
