Building a House the Eco-Friendly Way with 3D Printing

Inspired by plant patterns, the reusability of waste materials, and architecture made from the earth in locations around the world, Ronald Rael and Virginia San Fratello of Emerging Objects studio are exploring the intersection of function, frugality, and beauty in their large-scale 3D printing structures. Learn more about their work in this KQED Arts video: Building a House the Eco-Friendly Way with 3D Printing.

In this time lapse, we can see the assembly and disassembly of Bloom, a 3D-printed cement structure:

Then take a closer look at Star Lounge, a structure made with 2073 hexagon blocks that were all printed by a small MakerBot Replicator 2 Desktop 3D printer. It was made in collaboration with Bold Machines.

Next: Fibonacci Zoetrope Sculptures and 3D printing with 1900F molten glass.
