AI Build, a UK-based company developing advanced software and hardware for large-scale, construction (mostly polymer-based) 3D printing applications, unveiled the Cloud Pergola installation at La Biennale di Venezia, as part of the Croatian Pavilion curated by Bruno Juricic.

As part of the 16th International Architecture Exhibition La Biennale di Venezia, the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Croatia thus introduced one of the world’s largest 3D printed structures. Cloud Pergola crosses the boundaries of architecture, art, precision engineering, computational design and robotic fabrication.

Cloud Pergola

The 57 square meter, 3.3 meters tall 3D printed construction was designed by Alisa Andrasek and Madalin Gheorghe using AI Build’s advanced 3D printing software. The complex structure was then seamlessly printed by robots in London and shipped to Venice in large pieces for assembly.

This project is a glimpse of what architecture is evolving into with the advancements in technology. The company is not news to this type of high profile demonstration of its large-scale 3D printing capabilities, having worked with top architecture and design studios such as Zaha Hadid and Arup on projects such as the Thallus structure exhibited at Milan Design Week in 2017.

AI Build is “on a mission to enable factories of the future with Artificial Intelligence. A future where manufacturing is easy, smart, sustainable and affordable.” The company’s Autonomous Large Scale 3D Printing Technology is available for a broad range of applications, such as construction, high-performance products, custom molds, interior finishes and furniture.

Victor does not really exist. He is a pseudonym for several writers in the 3D Printing Media Network team. As a pseudonym, Victor has also had a fascinating made-up life story, living as a digital (and virtual) nomad to cover the global AM industry. He has always worked extra-hard whenever he was needed to create unique content. However, lately, as our editorial team has grown, he is mostly taking care of publishing press releases.
