Coming Soon: A 3D-Printed Neighborhood
"Scheduled to take shape this summer in an undisclosed city in Latin America, the 600 to 800-square-foot houses feature walls and structural elements that can be 3D-printed in a day, cutting the time, effort, and ultimately the cost of production."
Icon and New Story have been making a steady stream of news about 3D printing homes since March at South by Southwest, when they announced the commercial availability of their Vulcan II 3D printer. The companies revealed the first fully permitted 3D printed home in March 2018.
For the new project, Icon and New Story are working with Yves Béhar, "the founder of fuseproject and design mind behind gadgets like Jambox and Fitbit."
Previous coverage of the project is also available from Fast Company.
