Curve Appeal is a demonstration project intended to showcase the full potential of Cellular Fabrication (C-Fab™), the combination of freeform 3D printing and conventional construction materials to create functional composite building components.
Curve Appeal is designed as a fully functional home, but will be utilized for demonstration purposes and ongoing research. With 136 parts engineered by SOM’s Chicago team of sophisticated structural engineers, it will be as robust as it is beautiful. The project is currently in production and will be constructed on the campus of Chattanooga State Community College in Chattanooga, TN.
