Assume a solid barrier built all around a star. Make it of electrical cells and bring power off the back side. This could be used to generate antimatter, needed to allow interstellar travel within a human lifetime.

Start by putting solar cells in orbit around the Sun's equator. They would be in orbit but could be merged. Eventually the entire equator is one solid ring. Then it can be expanded poleward.

The solid surface must be vented to allow solar wind to escape. Pressure regulation would assure the structure is under stress everywhere. This for good inflation. Polar areas would not be in orbit and would need an internal pressure to hold them in place.

Structurally, it starts with a long ring orbiting the star, absorbing a substantial part of its internal radiation and producing energy in other ways.

As for what to use to build this giant structure, it would satisfy the greatest work of engineering, the methodology and how it was done with the ISS and which obviously will have to be built in space, with this, we could apply nanobots that for this task your model and matter storage professional.

"In the near future, we may consider building manned space stations, specially designed to be operated by robots, with a small human team to oversee operations. These robots would be able to perform a variety of space tasks, harnessing solar energy as a source primary.

The conversion of solar radiation into electrical energy is already a widely established technology, used in satellites and space probes and also rovers. Solar panels capture solar energy and turn it into electricity, powering the spacecraft's systems.

In addition, consider the possibility of transmitting this energy generated at the space station to Earth through beams of transported rays, transmitted by a transmitter directed to the planetary receiver, Nikola Tesla has already developed a prototype capable of doing this feat in short scalar, and it is also addressed in science fiction works, such as Isaac Asimov's short story in the book "I, Robot".
