3D-PRINTED CABIN MADE FROM UNCONVENTIONAL MATERIALS

CAN HOUSING PROBLEMS BE A THING OF THE PAST?

The future is now! This tiny cabin was built using 3D-printing technology the tiles on its exterior, the roof tiles, as well as the tiles lining the interior walls, are all 3D-printed, over 4,500 3D printed ceramic tiles for that matter, using a mix of waste and biodegradable materials such as pomace, sawdust, bioplastic, and cement. Don’t worry, this cabin is indeed structurally sound and is not susceptible to weathering. The façade of this cabin is well-decorated with succulents, while the interior has a simple yet elegant design. At night, the walls are backlit with color-changing LEDs consisting of soft, gentle colors for a relaxing night’s sleep.

This project really comes to show that 3D-printing already has applicability in the field of architecture, this means making housing more accessible; with plans for scaling and testing this technology with bigger projects.

“Our methods and materials portray a very different paradigm: one that focuses on 3D-printed architecture as being sustainable—using waste stream, biodegradable materials, and clay-based materials—as well as beautiful, and crafted by integrating contemporary building practices,” Rael continues to state.
