»The freedom of fantasy is not an escape into the unreal; it is boldness and invention.« – Eugène Ionesco. Architecture is the embodiment of culture. Characterized by technical progress, it depicts the contemporary spirit of present time epochs.

Our project deals with the adaptive 3D-printing technology and its consequences on today‘s architecture. We explore and enable the 3D-printing of buildings on a grand scale. How will the settlement of rural places and urban areas be carried out in the future? Developments show that the work of the individual is designed to be more productive and resource-efficient in order to increase the total amount of work.

In the 21st century, we can take another step and question our ideas of building, working and living. Buildings, whose production is carried out through an honest handling of a new technology – even the initiation of an new architectural epoch. The model of the parasitic, location-independent system impresses with its unique purism in construction and logistics. Will our development help to solve problems or are we losing ourselves in the intoxication of technologies? It is the responsibility of our generation to accept such challenges and working towards a healthy future.
Kybernit is exploring a flexible system approach to large-format 3D printing. Parasitic it adapts existing topographic structures. The rope suspension stretches the Kybernit at four system mounting points. The kinematics of the Kybernit differs significantly from conventional 3D-printers. However, the adaptive principle is based on the conventional 3D printing process: Three-dimensional objects are built up layer by layer - the construction is computer-aided, based on the system of computer-internal data models. Precisely because existing 3D printing approaches can be adapted, the principle of cybernites represents a visionary approach to rethinking great and complex structures.

The Kybernit is a community work together with Alexander Kornejewez and Tizian Erlemann.
