How are dokas dismantled? Perhaps the last stage is to raise them above the level of the top of the core and dismantle them from within?

Or perhaps there's a sneaky height increase afoot to 200m?

There's a question! What are the dokas/slipforms made out of? I always assumed cardboard for some reason
