Giant mold insitu

  • Hiya folks :)
    Would you think it would be possible to build a dome by shaping directly an outside and inside shape, in an organic way; using for exemple chickenwire and some kind of plastic, or even a fine layer of clay or cement on the wire, and then fill up, layer by layer, the giant mold ?
    (this idea sound much more attractive than building bricks, as any funky shape could be achieved. I'm not concerned about it being smooth or regular.
    What are the main arguments against that idea? did anybody poured aircrete directly in place , for medium size buildings ? (7m diameter)
    any info is welcomed, thanks :)

    People discusses forms all the time but there are a host of hurdles to overcome....1) cold joints 2) curving and arching form
