Fluid Morphology: translucent 3D printed building facades with tunable ventilation, insulation, shading

Architects at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have developed 3D printable translucent facade elements for architectural design. The 3D printed building envelope concept, called “Fluid Morphology,” can provide ventilation, insulation, and shading. Thanks to regular improvements in concrete 3D printing and other large-scale additive manufacturing techniques, 3D printed buildings are on the rise—quite literally. […]
