TOVA is Spain’s first 3D printed prototype using earth, built with a Crane WASP. The project was born from the ongoing research developed by a group of students and professionals from the Postgraduate in 3D Printing Architecture to find new ways of facing the social and environmental challenges of the future through its various education and research programs. The construction, that has been carried out at the Valldaura Labs, represents the bridge between the past vernacular earthen architecture and the future of large scale 3D printing technology.
