The project is a joint venture between New Story, a non-profit focused on improving housing, and ICON, a firm with expertise in large-scale 3D printing.
The house was printed in ICON’s Vulcan II printer, which uses a proprietary concrete blend called Lavacrete. The maximum print height is 8.5 feet, and width is 28 feet – and it needs 4–6 people to operate it. If you feel like having a go yourself, they’ll be on sale from 2020. More info at www.iconbuild.com.
