BRIEFWith the advent of the internet, we can access all the information in the world within a blink of an eye, in contrast to spending hours long in the library. Do you think that 3D printing can have a similar effect on construction technology? Do you believe that it can be the way forward?
In this fast-paced world, 3D printing can completely change the way in which architects design buildings. It opens up endless possibilities in design, at lower costs and 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, design unconventional forms.
