Award-Winning Print & Frame Project and 3D Printing


This project investigates how a “vertically challenged” 3D concrete printer can be creatively combined with typical wood framing techniques to accelerate the construction of high-quality urban infill housing. Our proposal seeks to integrate framing and printing and avoid simply plopping a wood framed house on top of 3D printed concrete base.

Print & Frame won an AIA Columbus Honor Award in the Unbuilt category in 2023. The jury said, “Print and Frame was my favorite submission of this year’s awards. It tackled the real-world problem of our nationwide housing crisis by effectively marrying technological innovation with local craft to form an elegant and readily identifiable new typology for homes”.

The Design Architect is SUBJECT / MATTER STUDIO. Sponsored by the AIA Columbus Committee on Design.
