Wallpaper’s 30 Concept Houses

Wallpaper commissioned 30 concept houses for the 4th International Architecture Biennale in Rotterdam. They felt their exhibit would best show the concepts by having actual 3D models on display. The DMC (Digital Manufacturing Centre) London produced these models for 30 different architectural clients for the exhibition. 3D design files were obtained from the architects and then printed on DMC’s equipment. Each model took approximately one and a half days to complete, but they built 13 in parallel by squeezing multiple models into one build sequence. Printed in dense nylon, the pure white models are the “traditional color for the architecture aesthetic”. The video explains their thinking and walks us through the build process.
