According to designMena, Dubai will be creating the world’s first fully functional 3D printed building. The structure will be printed layer by layer using a 20 foot tall 3D printer and then assembled on site in just a few weeks time. The building will act as the temporary HQ for the staff of the Museum of the Future.

All interior furniture, detailing, and structural components will also be built using 3D printing technology, combining a mixture of Special Reinforced Concrete (SRC), Glass Fiber Reinforced Gypsum (GRG) and Fiber Reinforced Plastic (FRP). This combination will make it the most advanced 3D printed structure ever built at this scale and the first to be put into actual use.

House of Dior New Boutique in Seoul | Architecture

 

 

boutiqueseoul_architecture

Designed by architect Christian de Portzamparc and inspired by Dior’s couture lines,  the new House of Dior Boutique is all about the curves found in flowing fabric, details such as the stitching represent the fine tailoring of Dior’s Parisian couture. He started his first research on the project back in 2011, and just opened this June.

“I thought about the movement of the fabrics, the weaving effects, and I created a facade that would explore these elements,” the architect explains. “This white softness is like the couturier’s toile when he’s at work. It has a sense of movement that plays with light. This sculptural suppleness was my starting point.” The House archives also inspired the building’s final form: the movement of those immense architectural sails is strongly reminiscent of the dresses Cyclone and Cocotte, designed by Christian Dior in 1948. With the House of Dior building , his two great passions, for haute couture and architecture, come together in a unique creation.
