Stone Spray

27th August 2012

Taking inspiration from the excellent Markus Kayser or just part of the zeitgeist of the future of architecture, new resources and 3d printing The Stone Spray project is a research project using a 3d robotic printer that makes architectural forms from soil.

Exploring the idea of additive manufacturing in architecture - finding ways of new eco friendly and innovative systems to print architecture in 3D - it collects sand and soil on the site that the 3D printer is on.

Binding it with an adhesive that when combined creates sculptural structures it creates shapes from sustainable and architecturally sound materials.

Digitally controlled by a computer, the designer/architect has direct input on the outcome of the shape as the printer is mult directional and therefore can print in any direction to include on vertical surfaces.

I use this blog as a notebook of inspirations – I post things I see and like and thoughts of mine. I don't revolve around a singular topic and neither does this blog. Everything and anything is relevant
