And, actually, it’s porous, calcified look isn’t an accident; the the fibrous nylon walls were inspired by the way bone grows. So what does the firm says about its rivals at Universe Architecture? “We actually don’t even consider that a 3D printed building because he is 3D printing formwork and then pouring concrete into the form,” he says. “So it’s not that the actual building is 3D printed.” Ouch.
