Architects used a 3D concrete printer and the walls set in just 24 hours – compared to the 28 days for traditional concrete.

Architect Massimiliano Locatelli said: “My vision was to integrate new, more organic shapes in the surrounding landscapes or urban architecture.

“The opportunity is to be a protagonist of a new revolution in architecture.”

A spokesman for Arup, one of the companies behind the project, said: “This building represents a milestone for 3D printing applied to construction.

“Robots are opening up a number of possibilities for realizing the next generation of advanced buildings. ”
