The DELTA WASP 4-metres-high printer for an important architectural project
THE SHARING KNOWLEDGE
The DELTA WASP 4-metres-high printer for an important architectural project.
With WASP now is possible to make innovative building and radically rethink the livability. Thanks to the collaboration with Siam Cement Group (SCG), the largest Cement manufacturer in Thai that with the Architect Pitupong Chaowakul (Supermachine Studio) stand out for an original way to utilize the 3D technology building the first house 3D printed in Asia.
The project was born due to the interesting of SCG to the potentiality of 3D. They declare: “We would like to drive the construction industry in Thailand, and 3D printing technology is one of the innovations that will get more involved in the construction and architecture.”
The first project completed with this technology is “Helix: The Family Cocoon”, a small creative sleep-able shelter, imitates natural structure of the shell fusiform. The design is complex against construction made by labor skill due to ‘Random Twist’ form and layer by layer texture.
Today they stands out again with a new project, the building of a house. This is a “home” in the broadest sense of the word. An amazing 21st century cave – a recreation of the first dwellings our distant ancestors ever called home.
