3D-Printed Chains Of Ice And The Robot-Assisted Igloos Of The Future

While we’re on the subject of ice and architecture, it’s worth taking a quick look back at the incredible body of architectural research produced at McGill University exploring how designers and engineers can build full-scale, elaborate structures using nothing but frozen water. They call this “computer assisted ice construction”, or the “robot-assisted rapid prototyping” of frozen environments.A small but dedicated team led by Pieter Sijpkes and Jorge Angeles has been spear-heading the experimental use of ice at the university, creating everything from 3D-printed chains to what they describe as “commercial and industrial part modelling” used
