OTF 5 Meters 3D Printed Wall Section Inaugurated in Valldaura

The 2017-18 edition of the Open Thesis Fabrication Programme, directed by Edouard Cabay and Alexandre Dubor, has proposed to design and test a housing prototype that takes advantage of the latest computational tools, the additive manufacturing process, and the properties of the mud to achieve passive performative system for bioclimatic architecture.

On Thursday 22nd of March, OTF students had the pleasure to inaugurate this year’s OTF prototype, a 5-metres tall 3D printed wall section constructed in IAAC’s Valldaura Self-sufficient Labs, exhibiting some of the technology’s potential for new structural and climatic solution in adobe constructions.
