It looks to be a floating foundation being built in the video. The theory is if you remove X amount of weight in water/earth from an area, that area will now support the same weight of a building. I suppose they weigh each load of excavated soil/water then stop when they reach the design weight of the building. The building is then essentially floating.

For this I think a base of rigid design needs to be made to keep the building from twist or bend. It looks like they have that covered with the surrounding rebar and concrete.
It started hitting the fan in the 1950's

A technologically advanced society would teach their children how to start a fire by rubbing two sticks together before teaching them how to use a lighter.

Aren't energy consumption and computers supposed to make life less stressful?

If you are not having fun then you are doing it wrong.
