Futuristic? Certainly.

Like the Millennium Falcon? Only in that the house does NOT come close to looking like anything else.

Basically the article is click-bait for people interested in the movie.

Someone “tried to nail a steel bottom plate to the concrete,” he said. “There was no connection [between] walls, there was no connection at the roof, and it was simply nailed to the concrete foundation. That’s not going to cut it in my book, and it won’t cut it in any [building] code I know.

Speaking of, guess what happens when you throw up thousand foot luxury hotels using poorly trained slave labor?

Yeah, they were common enough back when.

In Marquette, MI, there used to be a mall with a "Red Balloon" toy store (now there's just four locations in Utah) that had, among other things, annual Lego building competitions. (I won second place once!). Anyway, they'd haul out one of those things for the window display at christmastime.

Heh--seen it? As an obliging baby-sitting uncle I had to (dis-)assemble one of these for my nephews, sometimes several times in a given evening (because one of the rules I set was that a toy had to be put away before we could go on to something else).
