Striatus: the first-of-its-kind 3D Concrete Printed bridge
Striatus is a first of its kind 3D concrete printed bridge that stands solely through compression without reinforcement, using concrete at its best with minimal material use for maximum strength.
With smart design and 3D Printing, we can reduce up to 50% of materials used with no compromise in performance. Holcim partnered with Block Research Group and Zaha Hadid Architects, in collaboration with incremental3D, to build Striatus, the first-of-its-kind 3D Concrete Printed bridge. Striatus is a complex structure made possible by a specific, custom-made ink, from Holcim’s TectorPrint range, developed by our 3D Concrete Printing research team.
The product of the best minds in their fields, Striatus demonstrates the infinite possibilities of 3D Concrete Printing to enable the creation of breakthrough infrastructure projects that are more sustainable, faster to build and cost-effective, with no compromise on aesthetics and experience.
Its digital and circular design uses concrete at its best: the footbridge holds together solely through compression with no reinforcements, applying computational design and 3D printing, for minimal material use and maximum strength.
