SOM debuts "world's largest 3D-printed polymer building" designed for off-grid living

Each segment of the corridor-like structure is created separately using 3D-printing technology, and then assembled wherever needed, without requiring any additional framing or supports. SOM ’s design team worked alongside U.S. Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory for this off-grid masterpiece. They claim it’s the world’s largest 3D-printed polymer structure, and they’re probably right. The shelter is a prototype made for the Additive Manufacturing Integrated Energy (AMIE), an initiative designed to spur innovations in self-sustaining renewable energy. This model is known as AMIE 1.0.
