The World’s Largest 3D-Printed Pavilion

Beijing Design Week 2015 brought us many things, but perhaps the most intriguing creation of the exhbition is VULCAN. Named for Vulcan, the Roman God of Volcanoes, this aesthetically pleasing pavilion (on display at Parkview Green) is composed of 1,086 different 3D-printed units that are assembled into the final form.
 
Coming in at eight meters long and nearly three meters tall, it’s now the world’s largest 3D-printed architectural pavilion having set a new Guinness World Record. As a result, it’s light weight can hold this peculiar yet beautiful shape and can include more unique stylistic flourishes than a normal pavilion. It’s an exemplary model of design and innovation.
