Giant RP machine Builds Ice Museum in Forest

The building above is a Yoda’s creation crafted through RP machine. Architect François Roche of a french architecture firm R&Sie has lately won the contest to build an innovative “museum of ice”- an art museum and alpine ice research station in Évolène, Switzerland. François is going to build it with an ogre 5-axis CNC machine in Lausanne that can work a 5-meter by 40-meter area, like heaping up mooch of bread.

The proposed mechanized process is quite enthralling and it would be installed on-site, slice by slice. Around 1000 locally harvested trees are anticipated to be used as a raw material for this installation. Trees are then turned into plywood in fragments of 2.5 meters (w) X 7 meters (L). These perpendicular “segments,” each 90 centimeters deep serves as an installed system holding perfunctory services within their depth. Presently, it is just a computerized developed model.
