Airbnb Lists the Fibonacci House, the First 3D Concrete Printed Tiny House,
Printed by TAM begins>–
ELSON, British Columbia, July 13, 2021 (Newswire.com) – Twente Additive Manufacturing (TAM) announces that their Fibonacci House, Canada’s First 3D Printed Home, which is also the world’s very first Airbnb listed 3D Printed Concrete Tiny Home, is now available for vacation rental.
Ambitious, yet humble, the house showcases the advantages that the 3D Concrete Printing Technology has to offer; free form design with curved walls that gives the house the fluid outline combined with the robust structure that enables the home to be completely sound and climate proof, easy to maintain and clean.
The Fibonacci House was printed using a concrete printer designed and sold by Twente Additive Manufacturing, a construction-technology company. The Dutch start-up was founded in 2018 by its core technical team coming from the automation and wind energy industry. With subsidiaries in Canada, Germany and soon Dubai, Twente quickly took a leading role in the global 3D Concrete Printing (3DCP) development; today it is recognized as one of the five most influential companies of the entire 3DCP industry.
The design of the house was created using the Fibonacci Sequence, a well-known pattern that is often referred to as “the golden ratio” which can be found in nature in numerous variations. The site of the printed house is in the Kootenay Lake Village project at Procter Point, one of the fastest-growing communities in the Nelson, BC catchment basin.
All proceeds from the Airbnb revenues are being directly diverted to an affordable homes project spearheaded by World Housing, an international NGO. Building on the lessons learned from the Fibonacci house, World Housing will build what they hope is the first community in Canada of affordable living space built entirely with 3D printing. World Housing has already provided living space for thousands around the world in developing nations and felt it was time to support marginalized populations in their home country. The first project tentatively named Sakura Place will be a cluster of five 3-bedroom homes that combine to form the petals of a Japanese cherry blossom. These homes will be used exclusively to help single mothers re-establish healthy and safe living spaces that combine access to nature for their children which is often excluded from affordable housing in major urban centers.

The World’s first fully 3D Printed concrete tiny home on Airbnb.
This unique architectural home was designed based on the famous Fibonacci Sequence.
This is a fund raiser to help World Housing (.org) continue their important mission, solving the housing crisis.
Located in tranquil Procter, 40 km-s from Nelson, British Columbia.
Wouldn’t it be good if Christians stopped whining about the (admittedly fraudulent) welfare state, and replaced it with something better, more locally tied, more personal, less costly and wasteful and tyrannical and impersonal and elitist?
I believe that day is coming.
For strictly patriotic/nationalistic reasons, I would just rather have Americans lead the charge into that better day, rather than Brazilians or Indians or Nigerians.
But if Americans decide to stick with insipid powerless political moaning and dreamy Rapture escapism?
Well, the United States will not be the first nation to let the future pass her by.
