3D Printed Habitat Studio

This is a multi-disciplinary design build studio in which we will focus on developing innovative architectural concepts for habitats that take advantage of the unique capabilities that additive manufacturing (3D printing) offers to the building technologies and to the discipline and language of architecture.

The goal is to engage in a process of design, development, and 3D printing a shelter using concrete as a composite material that can be composed to serve various functions, thinking in terms of functionally-graded materials to optimize and simplify the building industry simultaneously.
