Back in the 1970s there was a magazine call "Mother Earth News'---they had a lot of great articles on building with straw bales---

The design you linked to was a lot fancier than the typical bale house--nice--Mike---

Straw bale can be used as 'in-fill' between structural members as in your posts, or as a supporting wall.
Just about helped a guy build a straw bale porch/addition. He passed away so it did not happen.

Mike I loved that magazine until it changed. Lot of good projects in it.
