3D printing technology is continuing to transform the face of many industries, which is evident with the news of the 'Gaia' 3D-printed house from WASP. Built using the WASP Big Delta 3D printer, the home draws inspiration from pottery artwork and is actually crafted from mud to make it a stylish yet eco-friendly dwelling. The home was researched in collaboration with RiceHouse to make it an effective yet strong structure that's crafted from 40% straw chopped rice, 25% onsite soil, 10% hydraulic lime and 10% rice husk.
The 'Gaia' 3D-printed house was achieved in just 10 days at an approximate cost of €900, which identifies it as a particularly cost-effective alternative to traditional home building methods.
