My name is Daniel, I'm an architectural assistant at MATT Architecture, based in central London
and we use 3D printing in a whole range of applications to translate our ideas into build form
MATT's quite a young company. We do a whole range of work
from bespoke residential work to commercial developments
We're quite a fun company
and we're just enjoying the process of designing and delivering buildings at the moment
Part of our mission statement or company ethos
is to unlock the potential of difficult sites through fun and inclusive architecture
In the past, in my old job, we would have made models by hand
just cutting the paper, cutting card
It's great for capturing ideas
but when it comes to developing complex shapes, complex geometry, it's really labour-intensive
So for something like this, for example, we would have cut out all the floor plans, all the facades
we would have to work out all the geometries and fold the card
and even then it wouldn't have been very sturdy
so we were kind of limited, in a way
By the time I come to MATT in 2013, desktop 3D printing was already starting to become kind of available
and Matt actually funded a Kickstarter 3D printer that we were trying to use in the office
so that's how we started to use it here
I'm working on a project called Ilona Rose House, and it's a large mixed-use redevelopment in central London
and that's a model that we worked with through the planning process, to show the building in its context
and that's actually a traditional architectural model; quite expensive, takes a long time to produce
and we found we needed to reiterate the design quite a lot of times
so the 3D printer was super useful for being able to produce cheap but really beautiful massing proposals
to show the planners and engage them in the planning process
and we just print it in a filament which has wood embedded in it, so we can achieve a really similar look
The real advantage of Ultimaker for us has been the speed that it can print at, but also the reliability
and this is one where we 3D printed at 1-to-1 the pattern that we want to have on the building's facade
so the green and the yellow are 3D printed pieces and the white are cast from this central green piece
and this lets us then cast a mold
a flexible, silicone mold
and then produce a tile
which is really useful to talk to manufacturers about the finish we're trying to achieve
but also to show the client the vision we have for the build
We've designed all the facade pieces we're going to then take a mold of and then cast
This is another example of how we just reintegrate 3D printing with traditional techniques
So here we are, at the site of the Ilona Rose House project
These 3 buildings on the corner here, going all the way back to that road are all to be demolished
to make way for the project we're designing on at the moment
That model of the corner you were just seeing is actually this corner here, which marks the entrance into Soho
so it's really important for the project and really important for us
and this facade pattern we've been working on will be applied to the building all along here
and on that street there
We find that, when we make models it really engages the client
A lot of what we do is quite technical, like producing technical drawings
When you show someone a technical drawing, they don't really engage with that
but when you show someone a model and suddenly they can pick it up and look around it
I think it's a way we engage people with the ideas we're trying to pursue
That's what we're trying to do
