An architectural designer meets a sculpture and installation artist in Oakland, California. This couple has created a 3D printed biodegradable structure for a redwood forest, and named it Echoviren Pavilion.
This structure/building will decompose in less than 50 years while in the meantime, it’ll serve as a habitat for insects, moss and birds. The couple needed about 10,8000 hours using seven 3D printers to create the materials and nearly 4 days to assemble the Pavilion!
This white design consists of more or less 600 interlocking components made of plant-based bio plastics. It’s a small example, but will sure mark a new era in design.
