Building The Future



This house was created and erected by a totally different approach than used within the standard construction process. The Villa Asserbo by Eentileen is built by sustainable materials and made by digital software while consisting of many small pieces of wood, where each of it is not heavier than two man can carry it, and was snapped together like a LEGO house. The parts were created by a rapid-prototyping technology.
The benefit of the technique is that it cuts back on many of the environmentally unsustainable practices of standard residential construction.
It took the constructors six weeks, a milling machine and $300.000 to build the 380 square-meter villa. Finally it is interesting to see the development of rapid-prototyping or even 3D-printing in the construction industry soon. Villa Asserbo could be the first attempt, which changes the basics of construction processes.
