Having built a dome home, I can say they are awesome.... when placed underground.  I'm not so sure of this design, it seems to have potential, but I like the calearth.org versions and the formworksbuilding.com versions better.

Well, I don't understand the technical part of this, but I thought that this maybe just can serve as an inspiration...
I wonder if the parts can be made from willow and put together like constructing a big basket??? and around maybe straw - strawbales???
Ok, I know that this version can't be finished in a few hours like the one in the video, but it can be cheap (this one is very expensive around 50 000$ for 44m3),
and much more ecological - made from local materials

Could you elaborate on that?

I could, but the websites I provided do a much better job of it.  I'd suggest reading up about the benefits of underground and domes on formworksbuilding.com   No, I'm not affiliated with the site.  i've just built one of their homes, and am about to do another.

The ones I liked had these inflatable bladders that concrete was pumped onto. Air was pumped into the bladder and a few minutes later a shell was made. Then the concrete was allowed to harden, the bladder let out its air, and in one day an impervious geodesic dome house was formed. It took a few more days to cut in windows and doors and outfit the home, but it was quick, nice looking and readily repeatable.

I am not sure I would build a home out of it, but I always thought they would make great barns for sheep.

Concrete canvas. It has so much potential.
