AMIE: A 3D-Printed Building Powered by a 3D-Printed Car

Published Oct 6, 2015

Architectural mega-firm Skidmore, Owings and Merrill worked in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory to create this incredible 3D-printed house that is powered by a 3D-printed car.

“This cutting-edge off-the-grid shelter created as part of the Additive Manufacturing Integrated Energy project is designed to be cheap and super energy-efficient, with extreme insulation and solar panels on the roof to supplement vehicle-created power.

The 3D-printed car is essentially a giant, drivable generator, and it would theoretically transfer power to the shelter wirelessly using magnetic technology, kind of like a giant wireless phone charger.”
