3D printing is said to -revolutionize archi-tecture: Thanks to new technologies, plastic, concrete, or metal can be extruded in a liquid state and then hardened into its final form.

With this- -Construction and Design Manual, architects and researchers -Kostas Grigoriadis and Guan Lee present a comprehensive, up-to-date overview of the topic. The book consists of detailed case studies of 3D printed -buildings, the materials that can be used in large-scale -additive manufacturing, and a breakdown of the -corresponding design guidelines, limitations, and achievable build dimensions. In -addition to these, the focus is on the environmental- -aspects of the method, the lifecycle of 3D printable- -materials, and the embodied energy of 3D printing compared to conventional building construction.
