3D Printed Public Infrastructures

In a series of public infrastructure projects, HANNAH currently explores architectural opportunities of full-scale 3D printing. By manipulating the construction process, the projects aim to integrate all the essential building components within the concrete structure using the 3D printing method developed by WinSun in Suzhou, China. The Folded Kiosk column develops variations within its external structural surface in order to integrate storage as well as lighten up the concrete: the folds make it turn fluid and fabric-like. The Heart Bench investigates single line printing in one continuous loop, alternating seating for people with planters for vegetation. The Seven Section House manipulates sectional conditions to accommodate programmatic functions within the residential program and open the structure for light and ventilation. The resulting 3-D printed stratifications in all projects are very expressive and constitute a distinct feature of the architecture, which we embrace: concrete 3D printing has its very own peculiar tectonics and construction logics.
