You gotta to be kidding. Assembling a house in 3 hours from 3D printing? Check out this ridiculously amazing technology from China. The Zhuoda Group managed to create a 200 square feet home from scratch in merely 3 hours. Although they have been very lip tight on the materials and technology for the built, it is nonetheless a display of awesome work from the Chinese company. It actually took the company only 10 days to concept and finish the project. With six printed modules consisting fractions like the living room, kitchen, bedroom, toilets and more, the house is not only quick to fix, but also enduring in nature. It is said to supposedly withstand fire, water and even earthquakes. Now that is something to reckon with. Not only is the cost of the project extremely manageable, it also bring 3D printing to a whole new level. Im starting to see more of how 3D printing will influence our future.
I know I havent been catching up a lot on design stuffs. Not that I will, but this article I chance upon on DesignTaxi just had to come on to the blog. First thing that came to my mind, “Man, I want that!” A house so dangerously mounted on to the edge of the cliff! Check this house from the Southwest coast of Victoria, Australia. That view! At this point, the design had significantly outweighed practicality. The Cliff House, is designed by Modscape Concept in an attempt to answer to the amazing needs for an unique yet adventurous clientele. Definitely a very intense moment for those with a phobia for heights but a very outlandish way of living for those who truly appreciate heights! As you can see, the highest floor is basically designed for the vehicle while the different levels portray a different segment of the house. Interestingly, the house diverges down narrowing as it moves lower. One must be pondering how this structure can actually be securely mounted to the edge of the cliff. To answer that, the designers have used engineered steel pins to ensure security has not been compromised. Awesome!
