Printing concrete

Today, the facades of buildings are often insulated with expensive and porous plastic. What if we could make more sustainable insulation materials with one of the strongest, cheapest and most widely used building materials in the world: concrete? And what if this can be done with a technique that reduces waste and costs, and increases speed and freedom of customised design? That is why master student Building Engineering Zixia WU is trying to 3D print concrete in the micro lab using different techniques.
