A milestone for 3D concrete printing
Meter by meter, layer by layer: Using a new type of pressure process for concrete, this extraordinary single-family house with 160 m2 of living space grew upwards piece by piece within 8 months.
The characteristic lines of the pressure layers still show unmistakably today: For this house, neither stones were lifted nor prefabricated parts were assembled. And that is just the beginning.
The German Innovation Award recognizes cross-industry products and solutions that stand out primarily for their user-centricity and added value compared to previous solutions.
