    “A Call to save the World”, WASP runs for a collaboration with partners belonging to every sector, from architectural design to the university research, from humanitarian associations to national ministries, able to fully share the project. It proposes a strategic program of constructive activities, expressly designed for on-site 3D printing and developed through the use of local raw materials.

    Expected partners:

    • Universities of Engineering, Architecture, Economics;
    • Ministries: Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Internal, Defense, Economics and Finance, Economic Development, Food and Forestry Agricultural Policies and Tourism, Environment and Protection of Land and Sea, Infrastructure and Transport, Labor and Social Policies, Education, University and Research, Cultural Heritage and Activities, Health;
    • Humanitarian associations and Onlus;
    • Public and private authorities;
    • Banking institutions and foundations.

    “3D Printing for Sustainable Living” is based on the following main macro-areas:

    • Promotion of human and material resources from the territory
    1. Employment of local manpower devoid of advanced training;
    2. Capitalization of human knowledge;
    3. Democratisation of technology for production purposes;
    4. Use of materials easily found on site;
    5. Employment of renewable energy sources.
    • Sustainability of construction process with low environmental impact
    1. Reduction in transport operations and costs with consequent logistics improvement;
    2. Reduced use of concrete;
    3. Employment of natural waste from the agricultural chain and consequent reduction of CO2 emission;
    4. Planning of the construction lifecycle;
    5. Reduction in the costs of construction.
    • Recycling materials
    1. Recycling natural waste from the agricultural chain;
    2. Rubble-recycling;
    3. Significant material saving thanks to controlled deposition.
    • Digitalization of construction site
    1. Mistakes-reduction due to on-site measuring with consequent overcoming of the traditional means of measurement;
    2. Constant definition of correct spatial coordinates;
    3. Monitoring of construction site;
    4. 3D scanning for digital data acquisition;
    5. Feedback between digital and real data; correction among possible construction issues.
    • Multi-purposes construction
    1. Achievement of high construction performances thanks to controlled material deposition;
    2. Embedding of supply facilities during construction, avoiding secondary working;
    3. Thermal insulation and natural ventilation directly on the wall construction;
    4. Coordinated use of multiple methods of digital fabrication, included CNC technology and prefab techniques.
    • Digital design
    1. Digitalization of construction project, available as a 3D printing digital file;
    2. Sharing digital contents available on the Internet;
    3. Replicability of the architectural project thanks to the versatility of 3D technology
    4. High constructive quality;
    5. Realization of architectural shapes non-realizable with ordinary methods;
    6. Employment of material optimization algorithm for construction purposes;
    7. Integrated design with BIM software.
