This 3D-printed floating house took 48 hours to build in Czech Republic

This floating home will also set an example for innovative affordable housing solutions for the future.

Czech sculptor Michal Trpak has teamed up with a group of architects to create a prototype for the world’s first 3D printed floating house. The house in Czech Republic took roughly 48 hours to build and a few more weeks to dry.

The building and construction industries are responsible for 39 per cent of all carbon emissions in the world, but thanks to innovative 3D printing methods this saves up to 50% of construction costs whilst reducing waste and carbon emissions by 20%.

The 3D-printed house is planned to float on the Vltava river in Prague this August.
