WASP introduces “3D Printing for Sustainable Living” for the coming 2019, a long-term program, focused on the development of construction processes through 3D printing and digital fabrication, towards a new concept of house building.
As already announced in the conference “A Call to save the World”, WASP runs for a collaboration with partners belonging to every sector, from architectural design to the university research, from humanitarian associations to national ministries, able to fully share the project. It proposes a strategic program of constructive activities, expressly designed for on-site 3D printing and developed through the use of local raw materials.
Gaia, the first architectural model 3D printed using the innovative technology of Crane WASP and launched in October 2018, is an integral part of the program and represents a case-study, crucial to fully understand the potentialities offered by the additive manufacturing in the field of construction. The mentioned construction embodies an advanced eco-sustainable model, especially in light of performances provided by the walls in terms of interior comfort and in light of cost reduction, thanks to the use of raw earth and natural waste.
WASP, aware of future opportunities in the field of green building, runs for representing a real leader of housing market thanks to technological willingness offered and established network of collaborators able to share and foster the project. In this regard, the company, available to perform the vision compatible with requests of each partner, intends to create an eco-district, which might implement the goals of “3D Printing for Sustainable Living” and put in place constructive strategies replicable in every environmental circumstances.
