From Martian Desert Colonies to Habitable Housing

 - Jan 11, 2018
The evolution and popularity of 3D printing has steadily facilitated an abundance of futuristic architectural projects, that allow the discipline to explore buildings from a completely different perspective. By inputting mathematical coordinates and artistic preferences within a 3D computer software, architects are capable of exploring and customizing their scale models to perfection prior the printing process. With the help of 3D technology, futuristic architecture has been able to efficiently test Mars Colony settlements, rebuild historical sites for immersive learning experiences, and unlock immense potential with "living architecture" sculptures.

The innovative practice coincides with the notion of sustainability as it has the potential to utilize recycled plastic and create biodegradable furniture designs. In addition, futuristic architectural projects are eerily appealing to a large demographic and harbor many options for creative expressions.
