radiolaria pavillon 3D print


“Radiolaria represents a micro-architecture experiment developed by Andrea Morgante of Shiro Studio in association with D-Shape. In 2008 D-Shape successfully developed the very first 3D mega printer that allows seamless and free-form construction of monolithic structures on a large scale.

“D-Shape, the world’s first large-scale stereolithic printer, was developed by Italian engineer Enrico Dini in 2008 to offer architects the design freedom that rapid prototyping allows.

“Andrea Morgante, founder of Shiro Studio, has collaborated with D-Shapeto produce the Radiolaria pavilion, a complex, free-form structure produced using the world’s largest 3D printer.

“Measuring 3 x 3 x 3 metres, the structure is a scale model of a final 10-metre tall pavilion to be built in Pontedera, Italy, in 2010.”
