This briny structure is 3D-printed and is entirely made of salt. The solid structure almost looks like plastic from a distance but actually has remarkable salted features. It was designed and manufactured by 'Emerging Objects' where it's made of 3D-printed panels of humble old salt. Its 336 translucent panels are embedded within the structure creating a bizarre pavilion.

The patterns that form along the wall are so refined you can see every piece that seamlessly connects with each other. This salt structure would be an example of futuristic-free standing walls or architecture that may be imposed. With 3D printing, the possibilities are endless with such creativity and design thinking. It would be interesting to see how this project may develop in the future.
