Print me a house - top 7 3D printed residential buildings

Currently, there is a real technological breakthrough, thanks to which three-dimensional printers have appeared and the ability to print small architectural forms on them. Moreover, today in many countries of the world you can see printed houses and buildings in which you can actually live, and 7 of them are worthy of special attention.

House of the future in the UAE

The name of this building, erected in 2016, speaks for itself . And according to the government's words, the "House of the Future" was the first building, every detail of which was created with a printer in China. Like typical buildings, the House of the Future is equipped with running water, electricity and even the Internet. Now the office is actively used for various exhibitions and work events of the Future Foundation.

Chinese villas from Win Sun

In 2014, 10 houses built with modern technology appeared in an industrial park in Jiangsu province, China. Various types of buildings were manufactured for the exhibition by the popular Shanghai Win Sun Decoration Design Engineering Co. The houses are of different types, but at the same time they differ in relatively low cost.

A year later, Win Sun presented two more printed buildings in Suzhou. In terms of their external decoration, they differed little from the usual buildings, which cannot be said about the material that was used for their construction. The walls were made of construction waste, which kept its shape thanks to a special hardener.

Yaroslavl project

In 2017, the first residential building in Europe appeared in Yaroslav, which was recreated using 3-D technologies. It took 2 years to build the house, but it took only a month to plant the main "box" on the foundation. Most of the work was done using a portal printer.

It is also equipped with all the necessary communications, ready to move in. The construction of the atypical house was carried out by the AMT-SPETSAVIA company, and its main task was to print a building suitable for life, and not at all just another exhibit.

Fairy tale castle in Minnesota

Andrei Rudenko from Minnesota developed his own 3D printer and decided to try it out by printing a small building in his backyard. This building has become a miniature castle, symbolizing the active development of modern technologies in architecture and construction.

The miniature castle, like its full-fledged relatives, received pointed towers and graceful arches. In the course of the press, Rudenko used the maximum tuning configurations, announcing that he was going to build a full-fledged living space with his help in the near future.

Italian house with glass roof

In 2018, an atypical building with a glass roof with a total area of ​​100 sq m appeared on the territory of Italy, which was built in just a week. This speed was achieved thanks to the use of a 3D printer to print individual elements. Two Italian companies were involved in the reconstruction of the house: Arup and CLS Architetti.

Amsterdam hut

Natural disasters often cause loss of housing. The Amsterdam architecture studio DUS decided to make the process of home restoration as comfortable as possible. In the end, using a 3D printer and durable bioplastic, they printed the "City Cab", which turned out to be completely habitable.

The 25 cubic meter structure has a fold-out bed, a table and a window. As for the bathroom, it is located on a small lawn near the house.

Apartments in the Philippines

Businessman Lewis Yakich decided to expand his hotel in the Philippines, choosing not the most standard way for this. For this purpose, the man invited the already mentioned Rudenko, who printed the apartment on a printer. His apparatus proved to be suitable for recreating an atypical hotel building.

The materials used were sand and volcanic ash, mixing which allowed to obtain the most durable mixture.

It is likely that in the near future, the bulk of new buildings will be 3D printed. Such "construction" is not only more economical, but also the most environmentally friendly. And all because after it there is no usual construction waste, while only recycled waste is used as materials.
