Mexico Builds The World's First 3D Printed Community Houses

30.12.2019 | World Architecture | www.worldarchitecture.org

Mexico has started to find a better, faster and easier solution for global homelessness by starting in its local context. According to New Story, a nonprofit organization offering pioneering solutions to end global homelessness, has announced that the world’s first 3D printed community has officially started to be built and they have revealed the first set of homes in Mexico.

The resilient, 500 square feet (46,45 square meters) homes were each 3D printed in around 24 hours of print time across several days by ICON, a construction technologies company, and feature final construction build out by ÉCHALE, New Story’s nonprofit partner in Mexico. The community of 3D printed homes will contain 50 homes in total.

3D printed houses in Mexico

After 18 months in planning, New Story and ICON have completed the first two printed homes in a remote part of Mexico. The 3D printer for homes, called the Vulcan II, is designed to work under the constraints that are common in rural locations. The 3D printed homes feature two bedrooms, a living room, kitchen and bath. Co-designed with feedback from the families who will live in them, the homes have been created to meet the specific needs of the community.
