MaretechSustainable architecture from nature
Today the architecture & building industry is creating massive amounts of pollution and the sector is facing a lack of raw materials, including water and sand. There is a need for revaluing discarded natural materials, controlling the use of the materials using methodologies to diminish waste.
MARETECH project aims to develop innovative products by applying discarded sedimentary materials to architectural elements (tiles, suspensions, bricks) by using advanced technology: 3D Printing. This technology will lead to innovative shapes that enhance the properties of the materials, while improving the characteristics of architectural elements (more lightweight, better insulation, etc.).
MARETECH project is defined by its environmental consideration: revaluing discarded natural materials. Those values lead to the choice of 3D printing technique, controlling the amount of material used without waste.
AURORE PIETTE STUDIO (France)
Aurore Piette develops sustainable design and craft by revaluing interior design using discarded sedimentary materials from the French Atlantic Coast, materials that are currently discharged into the ocean.
