This has not been done.
The authors of the project, the Bureau of CLS Architects and Arup showed the innovative idea of building with waste-free technology.
As you know, the construction industry consumes a lot of resources, in the UK it takes 60 % of the raw materials. This has huge impacts on the ecology architects are trying to minimize by using new construction technologies. And this year, one of the founders of CLS Architects Massimiliano Locatelli presented a unique home printed on a 3D printer. Such production can significantly reduce the amount of waste and increase the number of reused materials.
The 100 m2 house has everything necessary for living: living room, bedroom, kitchen, bathroom and even a small garden on the roof. Curved concrete walls here look like stylish design solution and fits perfectly with the delicate brass fittings in the interior.
The house consists of 35 modules, each of which was printed for 60-90 minutes; full house was printed in just 48 hours. It is easy to disassemble and assemble again, so after the festival, the building will be moved from the square to a new location.
The technology of 3D printing opens new possibilities in construction, because it radically changes the cost and speed of construction of the home. Engineers and architects can produce much more complex patterns for their designs, and small house could be built in record time and in any place.
The authors of the project succinctly described this technology five words: “sustainability”, “flexibility”, “availability”, “accuracy” and “creativity”.
