The world’s first 3D-printed neighbourhood
A giant 3D printer is creating new homes in rural Mexico. Each takes 24 hours and lets local families upgrade from a shack to a two-bedroom house. Could this be part of the global housing solution?
Powerhouse - a house which is 100% off-grid
A solar powered, ready-to-move-in, eco-friendly, smart home in India. Pre-fitted with electrical and plumbing systems that can be controlled remotely. For £18,000, buyers can have clean energy for their home and e-vehicle, free for life.
Products that could be used in small sites locally for rapid housing development. Quality housing, manufactured offsite to minimise on site disruption, whilst keeping the price well below the market average.
