A conference on “3-D Printing in Concrete: Terrestrial and Extraterrestrial Applications” will be held in the Main Lecture Hall, Building 08, Room 006, Dessau Institute of Architecture, Bauhaustrasse 5, Dessau, Germany 14.00-18.00 on Saturday 22 June 2013.
conference: “3-D Printing In Concrete: Terrestrial and Extraterrestrial Applications” with DINI, KHOSHNEVIS, HANSMEYER, & LEACH.
2.00–6.00 p.m. / Main Lecture Hall
Dessau Institute of Architecture
The conference will bring together for the first time the two leading figures in the field, Enrico Dini (Monolite UK) the inventor of D-Shape, and Behrokh Khoshnevis (USC) the inventor of Contour Crafting. Michael Hansmeyer (ETH Zurich) and Neil Leach (USC/DIA) will also be taking part.
Dini has collaborated with Foster and Partners on a European Space Agency funded research project to explore the potential use of D-Shape on the Moon, while Khoshnevis and Leach are NASA Innovative Advanced Concept fellows exploring the potential use of Contour Crafting on the Moon and Mars.
