just wondering, it is possible to use water as part of the building structure such as column...water column. maybe not fully water, some kind of combination of concrete and water or steel and water. do u think it can support the building load. ..

Yes, you can use water in building a structure. You just have to be very careful in building such. :)

What do this mean? How can water equal atmosphere? How is the word 'atmosphere' being used? How can I understand to use it in my own designs?
