The team of engineers from Italy united in their approach advanced technology of construction 3D printing with traditional material, which mankind used thousands of years. The machines designed and tested under the TECLA project (Technology + Clay) were squeezed out of the nozzles liquefied clay, taken on the shores of the neighboring river. One hut is 60 square meters. Meters took only 200 hours of operation and 60 cubic meters of clay.

Only two buildings of the domed form, engineers needed to enter approximately 7,000 instructions to a computer. The interior decoration was also printed immediately, together with walls with a thickness of 12 cm. According to the chief architect Mario Kuchiewella, less than 6 kW of energy took one house.

The top of the dome-shaped building is absent, so inside there is enough light, and the room protects the glass arch from the precipitation,

TECLA project The Kuchiewella Architectural Bureau was able to implement with the support of partners from the WASP construction company.

Concrete industry is one of the most harmful in terms of environmental pollution. In 2018, it accounted for 9% of the entire carbon dioxide emission. Almost 80% of CO2 emissions in the production of concrete occurs due to cement fault. This material is harmful to aviation fuel and almost as harmful to the atmosphere as agriculture.
