Printed Facades? Cases of Additive Manufacturing in the Building Envelope

This is the personal opinion of Philipp L. Rosendahl · Chris Borg Costanzi · Philipp A. Chhadeh · Robert Akerboom · Benedikt Waldschmitt · Alexander Wolf · Marvin Kehl · Ulrich Knaack and does not reflect the views of Facade Tectonics Institute.
