Pachinko-Like Tower Design for Tokyo 3D Prints Itself

Alex Campbell 0

Like a mega-vending machine, this unique skyscraper design prints  itself and serves customers through 3D printers, elevators and a  penthouse unlike any other. The project caught our eye on social media, entitled Pod Vending Machine Skyscraper, featured as an honorable mention in the 2017 eVolo Skyscraper Design Competition.

eVolo is an architecture and design journal focused on  technological advances, sustainability, and innovative  design for the  21st Century. Their objective is to promote and discuss the most avant-garde ideas generated in schools and professional  studios around  the world. It is a medium to explore the reality and  future of design with up-to-date news, events, and projects.
