Try googling the oslo student silo. and the quaker square in akron ohio. they are both made up of concrete silos but they should give you some ideas. and when youre finsished could you talk to me? I'm interested in doing this myself except with a concrete silo.

theres a company in britain that does this sort of stuff but i cant remember where. the best bet is google.
