Architecture team creates unique, 3D-printed wall

Tuesday, June 21, 2022

The reception area of a high-rise office in downtown Toronto now features a one-of-a-kind privacy wall thanks to a research team from the Waterloo School of Architecture.

Comprised of 175 unique, interlocking bricks made of clay, the Hive project combined an ancient building material with modern digital design and 3D printing technologies.

“This approach embraces the spirit of traditional ceramic craft with robotic precision, offering new avenues for material expression and geometric complexity within this field,” team members wrote in a project description.
