Echoviren, the first architectural structure realized in 3D
Last week, the Smith | Allen Studio collective completed their work entirely composed of 3D printed elements called Echoviren . This achievement, which took 15 days to complete, is located in the Redwood Forest, a giant redwood forest in Mendocino County, California. The artistic will was to realize it in translucent white to slice with the green of the spines and the red of the redwood trunks. The Echoviren is made up of 500 unique pieces printed individually on site thanks to 7 3D printers that have been filming continuously for 2 months (10800 hours cumulative). The plastic used for the work is bio-plastic PLA , so Echoviren will naturally decompose in this forest in about 40 years, becoming a micro-environment for insects, mosses and birds.
