The first 3D-printed house Gaia was constructed in just 10 days by the Italian 3D printer manufacturer Wasp. The new “infinity 3D printer” developed by them, uses an additive manufacturing technique that permits the use of raw material found on location, reducing transportation and material costs. Namely because of that building the mud house cost only 900 Euros.  

Gaia was made exclusively with natural materials such as raw soil, shredded straw, husk, and wood and is high-performing from an energy and environmental point of view. With almost zero environmental impact, the eco-friendly house is a high performing module both in terms of energy and indoor health. It does not need heating or an air conditioning system, as it maintains a mild and comfortable temperature inside in every season.
