Smith|Allen Studio brings together an architectural designer with a sculpture and installation artist. The design duo who live and work in Oakland, California have created a 3D printed biodegradable structure for a redwood forest.

Biodegradable Pavilion Dissolves Into The Earth Over Time

The Echoviren Pavilion will decompose in less than 50 years. Before that happens, it will serve as a habitat for insects, moss and birds.

The white pavilion consists of nearly 600 interlocking components made of plant-based bio plastics, produced in over 10,8000 hours using seven 3D printers. The completed structure was then assembled in four days.
