Proprietary concrete ink has been used to print blocks for a bridge named Phoenix.

The dry-assembled bridge, which is on display at building solution’s company Holcim’s Innovation Hub in Switzerland, stands solely through compression, so it can be disassembled into reusable blocks.

Using digital design and 3D printing to manufacture concrete components reduces the amount of materials needed by cutting waste.

The Phoenix circular bridge project explores sustainability and circular concrete construction methods. Also involved in Phoenix are Block Research Group, Zhah Hadid Architects, and incremental3D.
