America's First 3D Printed House
A bright, vibrant, rustic, and minimalist interior is showcased throughout this one-of-a-kind 3D home. We opted for reds, oranges, bold patterns, natural textiles, and ample greenery throughout. The goal was to represent the energetic and rustic tones of El Salvador, since that is where the first village will be printed. We love the way the design turned out as well as how we were able to utilize the style, color palette, and materials of the El Salvadoran region!

What Houzz contributors are saying:
A 3D-printed house in Austin, TexasJapanese architect and Pritzker Prize winner Shigeru Ban thinks about materials first of all: “We have to drastically shift to renewable materials. We have to reduce our use of steel and concrete. To make buildings affordable, we have to use locally available materials.” Ban sees a chance in history. “During the war, in Japan we didn’t have enough steel, so we used bamboo to reinforce concrete. We can go back through the history of building systems and materials, [to look] for materials that were economical, ecological and sustainable.”
