The Method of this vision takes advantage of the technology and breaks the boundaries of design by exploring the possibilities that 3D-printing offers in the field of architecture and construction. Furthermore, the work with sustainable, eco-friendly materials, such as clay as its main building material and Km-0 found additive solutions to enhance its structural properties.
The final out-put will be a combination of two things:
1-first: The Existing Train station in Homs City Located in the heart of the Syrian Railway Line.
2-Second: 3D-Printed Clay Units that have an unlimited Connection Configurations That can be easily Connected with The existing Building.
