Design Exchange is Canada’s only museum dedicated to the pursuit of design excellence and preservation of design heritage. The exhibition 3DXL marks the museum’s first major offsite cultural experience.
This mindblowing exhibition presents some of the world’s most innovative never-before-seen 3D printed projects.
Curated by director of collections Sara Nickleson, the exhibition is still running from May 14 – August 16, 2015.
Massive projects include a central component from DUS Architects’ 3D Print Canal House in Amsterdam. California’s Emerging Objects erects Saltygloo, the world’s first 3D printed pavilion printed entirely from locally harvested sea salt, while Toronto’s Denegri Bessai Studio sets up its Mangrove Structure, a airy alcove constructed using flexible rods and 3D printed connectors. Most noticeable is the piece of Swiss architects Michael Hansmeyer and Benjamin Dillenburger who have created Arabesque Wall, an impressive 3D printed building component made from sandstone.
