Valentina, you may see a interesting article about F.L.Wright's Rubble
-Trench Foundations, A simple, effective foundation system for residential
structures - by Elias Velonis, Fine Homebulding magazine, December 1983 /
January 1984, pag. 66-68.

'All those footings at Taliesin have been perfectly static. Eversince I
discovered the dry wall footing—about 1902—I have
been building houses that way.' —Frank Lloyd Wright

tell me if you neeed some more info about this.

All the best
