    Nice idea and design. Seems to be lot of work just for temporary structure – besides if plastered it can just stay where it is…
    I would like to comment on two things in the article – ,,no arrangements to cover or insulate the building” – straw is insulation it self :-). And ,,reinforce the straw bales with steel trusses” – if good quality and well compressed strawbales are used, they can be even load bearing, therefor it would not be necessary to ,,reinforce” them.
    Well done to use natural materials in public structure!
