3D Printing Architecture
Minerals, Metals and Materials Series
This paper will focus on the research and collective work of Emerging Objects, a MAKE tank, that is transforming materials into sustainable buildings for the future using additive manufacturing. Humble and traditional building materials, such as salt and soil, can be transformed into sophisticated building materials through additive manufacturing. Waste materials such as sawdust and chardonnay grape skins and seeds are converted for use in 3D printing and turned into bricks, blocks, and tiles for construction assemblies. The use of additive manufacturing technologies and radical, alternative materials, will allow architects and engineers to impact the way buildings and cities will be constructed in the future.
