About the Fibonacci House

The home was designed digitally and then sent to a robotic printer. The materials to build the house were then printed using a concrete printer designed and sold by Twente Additive Manufacturing.

After which, the walls of the Fibonacci House were printed off-site in merely 11 days, and brought to the build location for workers to assemble.
