When we interviewed architect Adam Kushner back in September, he had just gotten power at the site of his planned 3D-printed estate and pool in Gardiner, NY. Now thanks to Inhabitat we’re getting a better look at the ground-breaking design being developed by the architect and the CEO of D-Shape, James Wolff. Just a month ago, Wolff presented new renderings of the project at 3D Print Week NY, showing an impressive layout for the massive swimming pool and the four-bedroom, 2,400-square-foot home. If all goes as planned, the team will start their first trials and test prints this June!

3D printing has been making the design and tech rounds lately, from ceramics and construction bricks to cars and mini castles. But there’s one project in the works that’s looking to blow the rest out of the water. New York City-based architect and contractor Adam Kushner of KUSHNER Studios plans to build the world’s first 3D-printed estate in Gardiner, New York, which will include a pool, pool house, and 2,400-square-foot main house–all of which will be constructed using this new technology.
Kushner has teamed up with Italian inventor and engineer Enrico Dini, who will ship a modified version of his D-Shape printer to New York in January. Dini’s printer uses his patented magnesium-based binding process combined with a material like sand to render stone-like objects. Kushner also teamed up with Enrico’s local contact James Wolff, co-founder of Deep Space Industries, which works with NASA on asteroid prospecting, mining, and processing. The three men, along with Nigel Woods, founded D-Shape Enterprises New York. Adam’s construction company In House Group, Inc. will hire D-Shape Enterprises to build the estate.
