Italian 3D Printed Houses of Mud — 3 Comments

  1. These are very cool aesthetically, but practically all I am seeing is a mud house with no roof.

    And what about earthquakes? Unless the spherical form helps maintain the stability under stress, it seems like a good shake would be the death of these things.

    Is this more of a proof of concept than a practical idea? It just doesn’t seem a prudent way to make earth buildings.

    • These buildings are obviously experimental; it will take the test of time to see how they hold up. The mud must be stabilized, or the first heavy rain will start to wash it all away.
