Masayuki Sono is the designer behind the Sphere project by the construction company Serendix, which specialises in the construction of 3D printed, sustainable and earthquake-resistant architecture.
The Japanese group presented the design of a complete and compact housing unit, which can be printed and assembled in just 23 hours and 12 minutes, with materials that minimise the impact on the environment in terms of energy consumption.

Sphere is made up of a concrete support structure weighing 20 tonnes, with an assembly time of about 3 hours, which will be reduced even more thanks to experimentation with new technologies that will speed up production even more.
Masayuki Sono, winner of a NASA award for 3D buildings in 2015, is one of those designers who are trying to rethink the concept of homes, thinking in particular about their safety. What is surprising in this case is the production time, which would allow Sphere to be a vital solution for environmental disasters such as floods or earthquakes, providing shelter for evacuees. Serendix’s 3D house is also low cost, 24 thousand euros is the cost of your next home.
