(3Ders.org)  Architects Benjamin Dillenburger and Michael Hansmeyer have 3D printed a massive, highly intricate grotto from seven tons of sandstone. Commissioned by the Centre Pompidou in Paris, “Digital Grotesque II” stands as the stunning centrepiece of the new “Imprimer le monde” [Print the World] exhibition, where it premiered last month.
Digital Grotesque II appears equal parts organic and synthetic. Above all, the 3D printed grotto is a prime example of how computational technologies can push the limits of human perception, and create astounding architectural experiences through unique spatial expression.
