// WE ARE SO additive


The fifteenth talk of the WE ARE SO series - hosted by CREATIVE REGION Linz & Upper Austria will focus on 3D printing and additive manufacturing in the architecture and construction industry.

  • What is additive manufacturing and 3D printing in general?
  • How can new technologies - specifically 3D printing and robotics - be applied to the architecture and construction industry?
  • Which materials (concrete, metal, plastic, sand, wood, etc.) play a major role? Which ones will be of interest in the future?
  • What trends, opportunities and challenges are currently occupying the industry?
  • What examples are there of this in a regional, national and international context?
  • Which Austrian companies are considered pioneers in this field
  • How can creative professionals (designers, architects, agencies, etc.) work together with manufacturing companies here to drive innovation?

These and similar questions will be answered by means of practical examples and insights from experts in a relaxed atmosphere.
