Задача конкурсантов – спроектировать дом, который можно было бы напечатать на строительном 3D принтере ICON Vulcan. Цель – доказать, что с помощью 3D печати некоторые идеи реализовать проще, быстрее и дешевле, чем с использованием традиционных технологий строительства.
To say that the internet and digital technology has changed the world is such an understatement it boarders on ridiculous. Do you think that 3D printing can have a similar effect on construction? Could this nascent technology drive such a dramatic shift that one day we will look back with a similar clarity?
We believe that 3D printing has the potential tp completely change the way architects design buildings; opening up endless possibilities in design, at lower costs, and with swift execution. It is no less than a revolution!
At DesignClass we are passionate about exploring how design can have a positive impact on people's lives. 3D printing is not just a tool for faster construction, it is an efficient medium that makes sustainable fabrication possible at affordable costs. Think of the ways it can enrich people’s lives- through affordable housing, pavilions at public spaces, or a cozy cabin for a weekend getaway.
This is your challenge: design a home that adds value to people's lives, using “The Vulcan”, ICON’s 3D Printer. Propose an idea that explores the possibilities of 3D printing to achieve a breakthrough in architecture, efficiency, and design through unconventional forms.
