This affordable tiny house was 3D printed using mud, rice husks and straw to create a "zero-kilometre" structure.
Building with earth is one of the oldest techniques there is, dating back thousands of years. Not surprisingly, it's being combined with modern digital fabrication techniques such as 3D printing, in order to create eco-friendly, low-carbon structures that are also affordable.
Italian company WASP (World’s Advanced Saving Project) is one of these modern-primitive pioneers in the field of 3D printing with mud (as seen previously), creating large delta-style 3D printers that can manufacture habitable homes out of mud. Their latest project is Gaia, an affordable tiny home that's been printed out of mud using the company's modular printing system which uses a new “infinity 3D printer”, dubbed the Crane Wasp.
