WASP, a leading Italian 3D printing company, recently completed building a fully 3D printed home based on natural materials. These habitats are carbon-neutral and adaptable to any climate and context, making them the best option for for a sustainable future. This incredible feat was made entirely with reusable and recyclable materials, sourced from local soil, with multiple 3D printers operating that ran simultaneously.
"From the shapeless earth to the earth as house shaped. Today we have the knowledge to build with no impact in a
simple click," says Massimo Moretti, WASP Founder. "Technology is now at the human service and the home as a
birthright is real."
Moreover, the project considers its end-of-life cycle as it was designed to have a low embodied carbon impact. This means these habits take into account all the energy that has been and will be used (from creating it to demolishing it). The WASP TECLA habitat gives insight into the future of the green economy by leveraging the raw earth.
