A Chinese architectural company has built a villa in Beijing that might be the world's first earthquake-resistant 3D-printed house.
The project was completed in only 45 days thanks to non-stop printing. The result is a 2-story, 400-square meter home with walls as thick as 24 centimeters.
The architects claim the structure can withstand an earthquake measuring eight on the Richter scale. The company says the project required little manual labor while technology specialists supervised the whole process.
The house was printed using 20 tons of strong low-cost concrete. But they say any type of cement could be used in the process.
