IAAC (Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia, Barcelona) is the leading innovator and developer for genious and sustainable large scale 3D printing solutions. You may have heard about mini builders, solar house or on-site printing robotics, to name a few.
Mud constructions are an ancestral technique, based on the use of local material, with an ecological footprint close to zero. It is a material used worldwide, which allows significant winter heating and summer cooling, due to the thermal inertia properties.
Additionally, due to the ability to absorb and evaporate, clay offers a self-regulating humidity environment, promoting a healthy indoor climate. By pairing it with contemporary technology, the aim of the project was to develop a prototype that would state clay as a plausible construction material for any type of architecture, relevant to the developing architectural field.
