EQS-News : Striatus unveiled: the first-of-its-kind 3D Concrete Printed bridge

EQS Group-News: Holcim Group Services Ltd / Key word(s): Miscellaneous 
Striatus unveiled: the first-of-its-kind 3D Concrete Printed bridge 
2021-07-19 / 11:15 
  . Designed by Block Research Group at ETH Zurich and Zaha Hadid Architects Computation and Design Group, in 
    collaboration with incremental3D, made possible by Holcim 
  . Striatus establishes a new language for concrete that is digital, environmentally advanced and circular by design 
  . Exhibited at the 'Time Space Existence' exhibition, hosted by the European Cultural Centre (ECC) during the Venice 
    Architecture Biennale 2021 
Today marks the unveiling of Striatus in Venice, the first-of-its-kind 3D Concrete Printed bridge, designed by Block 
Research Group and Zaha Hadid Architects, in collaboration with incremental3D and made possible by Holcim. Striatus 
establishes a new language for concrete that is digital, environmentally advanced and circular by design. The 
footbridge holds together through compression with no reinforcements, applying computational design and 3D printing, 
for minimal material use and maximum strength. 
Philippe Block, co-director of the Block Research Group at ETH Zurich: 'The name 'Striatus' reflects the bridge's 
structural logic and fabrication process. In arched and vaulted structures, material is placed such that forces can 
travel to the supports in pure compression. Strength is created through geometry, using a fraction of the materials 
used  in conventional concrete beams. This, furthermore, opens a breadth of opportunities to build with lower-strength 
and in a more ecologically friendly way.' 
Shajay Bhooshan, Head of CODE, Zaha Hadid Architects' Computation and Design research group: 'Striatus stands on the 
shoulders of giants: it revives ancestral techniques of the past, taking the structural logic of the 1600s into the 
future with digital computation, engineering and robotic manufacturing technologies. Its tactile quality, aesthetics 
and strength reflect our principal partner Patrik Schumacher's vision that beauty is a promise of performance.' 
Johannes Megens, co-founder incremental3D: 'Striatus represents the perfect synergy of architecture and engineering 
that comes together with printing technology and material innovation. The beauty of 3D Concrete Printing is the 
delicate layering and precision you can apply to reflect perfect geometry. Our collaborative work makes the Striatus 
bridge greater than the sum of each of its blocks.' 
Jan Jenisch, CEO of Holcim: 'Striatus was designed by some of the best architectural and creative minds in their 
fields. It demonstrates the infinite possibilities of 3D Concrete Printing to enable more sustainable, faster and 
effective building structures, without compromise on aesthetics and functionality. Its digital and circular design uses 
concrete at its best, with minimal material use and blocks that can be repeatedly reassembled and infinitely recycled.' 
Striatus is a complex structure made possible by a specific, custom-made ink, from Holcim's TectorPrint range, 
developed by its 3D Concrete Printing research team. It sets a blueprint to build for the future using advanced 
technologies from computational design to 3D Concrete Printing. The next generation of inks can include Holcim's green 
building solutions, from its ECOPact green concrete to its ECOPlanet green cement, including recycled construction and 
demolition waste. 
Today, Holcim is working on a range of 3D Concrete Printing applications, from complex infrastructure to affordable 
housing. In Malawi, Holcim launched the world's-first 3D concrete printed school, taking only 18 hours to build the 
walls and using 70% less materials than traditional building techniques. Holcim is also working with GE Renewable 
Energy and COBOD to 3D concrete print taller wind turbine towers on-site, doubling their height to harness stronger 
winds and capture 33% more renewable electricity at lower cost. 
The bridge is now open to the public in the Marinaressa Gardens during the Venice Architecture Biennale until November
