Jack and the Rapid Prototyping Beanstalk

I'm kind of a sucker for design challenges with short time limits. I love twenty-four hour film festivals, 30 day novel contests, and anything that has that kind of "pressure cooker" atmosphere around it. So, of course I was loving this piece based on Jack and the Beanstalk by a group of young architects from Istanbul. This from the site:
"based on the story of jack and the beanstalk, a group of young architects in Istanbul put on workshop to create their own beanstalk in four days. Their solution was a structural system that was cheaply made using cardboard and fasteners in a short time period. The design features small geometrical forms that fastens together using simple screws and wing nuts. The design was created an executed in the workshop using a rapid prototyping approach of individual components that can be assembled together."
