World’s First 3D Printed Architectural Structure by Smith Allen Studios

By 

Worlds First 3D Printed Architecture

Hidden in the Red Wood forest, Smith Allen Studios assembled the world’s first 3D printed architectural structure, a Forest Pavilion. The Pavilion was designed by the design duo of Bryan Allen and Stephanie Smith and then they put seven 3D printers to work to create the building blocks of the design. 10,800 of printer time later, they had all the components ready to begin their assembly. The structure is created from biodegradable materials that allow it is slowly decay like the forest material surrounding it, but with an expected life span of 50 to 60 years. The structure can be used by man, but is also designed to allow nature to grasp onto the structure support moss and insect life.
