One of the world’s first 3D-printed homes has made its debut in Ravenna, Italy. Designed by Mario Cucinella Architects, the 645-square-foot structure is made entirely of local clay — a departure from previous 3D-printed structures that used concrete or synthetic materials like plastic. Mansion it is not, but the minimalistic design feat combines new technology with the ancient tradition of using building materials from the Earth. Named TECLA (after Italian writer Italo Calvino’s fictional city of Thekla), the home was built in just 200 hours and boasts a bedroom, living area, and bathroom.

Efficient, sustainable and low-waste, TECLA could offer a new vision for our building future.
