title 3D Concrete Printing in Architecture - A research on the potential benefits of 3D Concrete Printing in Architecture

summary This research explores the use of large-scale 3D Printing techniques in architecture and structural design. First we will analyse the various methods in large-scale 3D printing in order to choose the method with the most potential to be used to build large-scale residential buildings in the Netherlands. Then we will investigate the properties of this 3D printing technique to determine the new building process, related to building with a 3D Concrete Printer. The freedom in movement of the printer and the properties of the concrete mixture used to print will form the guidelines in the creation of a design language in which both material costs and labour costs are reduced to a minimum. The design language is later applied on the design of a house, which shows the impact 3D Concrete Printing should have on the current boundaries in architecture and structural design.
