fuseproject and yves béhar build world's first 3D-printed community

in latin america, yves béhar and fuseproject aim to build the world’s first 3D-printed community with each home fabricated in just 24 hours. the project looks to offer safe housing to shelter vulnerable populations from both environmental and physical danger. as opposed to how those in need are typically the last to benefit from innovations, the studio enhances 3D-printing technologies as a new yet highly powerful tool for major construction.

for the project, fuseproject partners with new story, a non-profit working on a mission to end global homelessness, and ICON, a construction technology company dedicated to revolutionizing homebuilding. although with a very quick construction time, the plans and designs for the community homes have been created through thorough, direct communication with the families involved as well as the wider community. this is to not only ensure the designs fit with the local culture and environment, but also to ensure the homes are unique and respond to individual housing requirements. the project will be built over the summer of 2019 with residents moving in later that year and early 2020.
