A Chinese company built these 10 completely 3D-printed houses out of all recycled materials in under 24 hours in Shanghai’s Qingpu district. They’re cool and ugly all at once.
The components for the concrete houses, each covering an area of 200 square meters, were made with a giant 3D printer measuring 500-feet-long, 33-feet-wide and 20-feet-high, according to the Economic Times. The houses cost 4,800 USD to make.
The Shanghai WinSun Decorative Design Engineering Co said the components were printed with special “ink” made from industrial construction waste.
This type of 3D-printed structure is environment-friendly and cost-effective, according to Ma Yihe, CEO of the company (above).
As long as they’re completely unlivable they’ll fit in fine.
