WASP completed an extremely lightweight skeletal 3D printed building
Aug 02, 2018

Italian 3D printer company WASP announced today the completion of the Trabeculae Pavilion, an amazing, highly experimental building with extreme lightness, and an innovative combination of bionic research and 3D printing.


The Trabeculae Pavilion was designed by the architectural computing technology laboratory (ACTLAB) of the school of architecture of the Politecnico di Milano university. Faced with the challenge of designing efficient and sustainable lightweight buildings, ACTLAB turned to one of the most striking examples of lightweight systems found in nature: bones.


The internal microstructure of organic bones called trabeculae is particularly illuminating for the ACTLAB team because it follows a continuous load response process of material recombination.
