Printing a 3D House?!

Landscape-House-by-Universe-Architecture-22Landscape-House-by-Universe-Architecture-42-300x169For the first time, a Dutch architecture firm plans on using a D-Shape 3D printer and outputting a house in the shape of a Mobius strip – a project they estimate will take 18 months! The team are working with mathematician and artist Rinus Roelofs.

This ‘Landscape House’ will be printed in sections using a giant D-Shape printer. The printer can produce sections of up to 6 x 9 metres making use of a mixture of sand and also a binding agent. Printer created hollow volumes will be filled with fibre-reinforced concrete to give it strength. The volumes will then be joined together to create the house.

Did you think this would be possible?
