Noticed the global headlines this past month about the world’s first commercial housing project based on 3D-concrete printing, to be built in Eindhoven? Jelle Houben from Houben / Van Mierlo Architecten is one of the designers behind the curvy buildings and joined our Thursday gathering to talk about this cutting-edge project. “I was surprised to see my small project in Eindhoven appear on CNNs website. I guess the progression of the 3D printing technique caught the medias attention. But I hope it’s also because we did a great job at designing a place where many people would love to live!” he said. His presentation about Project Milestone, the world’s first commercial housing project based on 3D-concrete printing, was held at the construction site where Kazerne is currently developing a hotel, fine dining hotel and multifunctional event spaces.
Attendees also got a short tour of the restoration and repurposing project of the former military police barracks and industrial warehouse by Kazerne creative director Annemoon Geurts.
