Echoviren, the first 3D architectural structure

The Smith|Allen Studio collective completed their work last week, which is entirely composed of 3D printed elements and named Echoviren. This work, which took 15 days to complete, is located in the Redwood Forest, a forest of giant redwoods in Mendocino County, California. The artistic intent was to make it translucent white to contrast with the green of the thorns and the red of the redwood trunks. The Echoviren is composed of 500 unique pieces individually printed on site thanks to 7 3D printers that ran continuously for 2 months (10800 hours in total). The plastic used for the work is PLA bio-plastic, so the Echoviren will decompose naturally in this forest in about 40 years, becoming a micro-environment for insects, mosses and birds.
