The project Ceram-Screens by Monisha Sridhara draws inspiration from traditional stone-carved Jaali screens, commonly found in Indian architecture. These ornamental structures serve a dual function, providing light and heat control by reducing solar glare and enhancing ventilation. Originally crafted from natural materials like stone and wood, their intricate design is meant to produce cooler air by utilizing the principle of contraction—allowing hot air to contract as it passes through their small openings, becoming cooler.

BM Partners completed Central Asia's first 3D printed house in Almaty, Kazakhstan, meeting strict seismic regulations.

Using extra-strong concrete, normally used for highly loaded structures such as skyscrapers and bridges, and other seismic precautions, the house is designed to withstand earthquakes of magnitude 7 on the Richter scale.

The entire building, with a floor area of 100 m2 (1076 square feet), was constructed in less than two months, with the walls printed in just five days.

To cope with the extreme temperature variations in Kazakhstan, the building also contains expanded polystyrene concrete for insulation.

Hailing from Beijing, China, Xuberance is a product design firm that leverages 3D printing technology to create unique furniture pieces and accessories. By embracing BigRep’s large-scale 3D printers, Xuberance is writing a new design narrative that combines sustainability and unparalleled design freedom.
