Project Introduction

3-D Printed Habitat - Design Competition
The 3D-Printed Habitat Challenge seeks to develop the fundamental technologies necessary to manufacture habitats using indigenous materials, including recycled materials. The long-term vision is that habitat-manufacturing machines could someday be deployed for the Moon, Mars or beyond to autonomously prepare shelters for humans. The Design Competition is an architectural design activity which invites participants to design a habitat which utilizes additive construction advantages over traditional construction. More »
