No day at the beach is complete without some attempt at building a sand castle, but have you ever dreamed of living in one?
Thanks to a talented group of students at UCLA you now can.
Peter Ebner, architect and professor at 3M futureLAB, gave his architecture students a difficult assignment with the hope of preparing them for the future of 3D printing: build a tiny, easily transportable 3D printed apartment. In response, they created miniature mobile homes constructed out of a mixture of sand and glue.
3M futureLAB is a UCLA architecture and urban design studio based out of Munich, Germany. Because of dense urban living conditions, students had previously created designs geared towards small, transportable homes, but these life-sized “sand castles” represent the first time this type of project was attempted using 3D printing.
