World’s First 3D-Printed Architecture by Smith Allen Studio

California studio Smith|Allen has completed the world’s first architectural structure using standard 3D printers. The duo lives and works in Oakland, CA. Called Echoviren, the 10x10x8 foot pavilion consists of 585 individually printed components produced on seven Series 1 desktop printers made by Type A Machines.

“Our work – the duo says – responds to site, form, structure, and interaction. We are focused on creating site-responsive, large scale works and spaces that investigate natural, technological, and constructed systems within the built environment“.

“Utilizing 3D printing and other digital fabrication processes, we make, do, create, and build projects that push the envelope of art, design, and architecture. We seek grafts, transmutations, and transfiguration within the spaces of our surroundings“.
