Can We 3-D Print A Skyscraper?

They are already able to churn out everything from food to guns and pieces of art, but could a 3D printer eventually contribute a skyscraper to the skyline of a British city? Yes, according to an architect at one of the country’s most famous firms. Michele Pasca di Magliano, an Associate at Zaha Hadid Architects, told The Independent that building small 3D-printed buildings was the “next step” for the firm, which currently produces around 40 scale models a month using its five machines. Asked it if may eventually be possible to print a skyscraper, he said: “Yes – you could print big parts of it, for sure.” But will they be durable?
