Two Cornell University architecture professors designed a cabin that is partially 3D printed.
The design uses ash trees infected with an invasive beetle species that are not suitable for sawmills.
The rest of the 10-foot by 10-foot cabin is 3D printed concrete.
In Ithaca, NY, waste materials have been turned into a sustainable and futuristic tiny cabin.
Leslie Lok and Sasha Zivkovic, both assistant professors of architecture at Cornell University, are behind this project from their experimental design studio, Hannah.
The Emerald Ash Borer is an invasive beetle species that threatens ash trees in the US. The beetles make full-grown ash trees unsuitable for sawmills and construction because of the irregular shape. With this design, Hannah found a way to repurpose these trees that were previously considered waste material. The studio created a
