The four apartment-concept developed around the Mobius strip concept was originally supposed to be built in Murska Sobota, Slovenia; made of a reinforced light-transmitting concrete Litraconthe building will take advantage of this technology to absorb filtered light throughout its entire outer shell. It is also a ruled surface. A model can easily be created by taking a paper strip and giving it a half-twist, and then joining the ends of the strip together to form a loop.

News: Dutch architecture studio Universe Architecture is planning to construct a house with a 3D printer for the first time. The Landscape House will be printed in sections using the giant D-Shape printerwhich can produce sections of up to 6 x 9 metres using a mixture of sand and a binding agent. I hope it can be opened to the public when it's finished.
