Boasting a look that mimics a cave’s organic construction, the ProtoHouse by Softkill Design is a conceptual house to be built from 3D printed components.
Resembling a fibrous mass, this construction was created with an algorithm that mimics bone growth in that it only adds material where it is mostly needed -- along points of stress. With its porous design, the space is prone to water seeping in wet weather conditions, a problem that is resolved with waterproofing along the inner lining of the construction. According to Dezeen, this structure was "designed to cantilever out from a hillside" making for a man-made cave construction.
In order to print out a mass this large, Softkill Design has resolved that it must be printed in sections, 31 to be exact, and put together at its permanent site. This one-of-a-kind design is highly modernistic as it takes 3D printing technology to an entirely new realm of possibility.
