Poetic Dutch architect plans to make building using massive 3D printer

‘A story of borderlessness. Can building be nature?’ asks Universe Architecture

A Dutch architect is going to attempt to make a full sized house using a 3D printer, it seems.

The firm behind thsi seemignly bonkers scheme is Universe Architecture, which describes the project as: “One surface folded in an endless möbius band. Floors transform into ceilings, inside into outside. Production with innovative 3D printing techniques. Architecture of continuity with an endless array of applicability.”

That’s certainly a colourful description, if lacking in certain key details. A PDF on the company’s website provides further information:

“A story of borderlessness.
Can building be nature?
When outside and inside merge.
There´s no end and no beginning.”

Again, more akin to a poem than a plan of action, and there’s no mention here on exactly how the building is going to come out of a printer.

However 3Ders claims the architects plan to print out 6 x 9 meters pieces for construction using a huge 3D printer called D-Shape. D-Shape is supposed to be capable of printing a two story building using thin layers of sand and an inorganic binder.
