BIG and NASA design 3D-printed buildings for the Moon
Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG), SEArch+ (Space Explotation Architecture) and the 3D-printed building company ICON are working together in Project Olympus, a NASA-funded initiative to develop robotic construction for the Moon. Working with NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama, the team will use a stimulant of lunar soil to investigate raising habitable, 3D-printable structures with materials found on Earth’s satellite, sturdy enough to withstand atmospheric pressure there, as well as cosmic and solar radiation.
