Architect Bjarke Ingels and Texas hotelier Liz Lambert join DESIGN:ED to discuss the redevelopment of El Cosmico in Marfa, how their partnership with ICON is redefining construction and design through 3D printing, and Ingels's hopes for designing on the moon.

“These [3D-printed] projects may be small in themselves but there is the potential for an incredible impact on the future of affordable housing: to pioneer the future of construction with additive manufacturing, and maybe build the first permanent human habitat on the moon. What we are trying to do with Liz is to re-explore the repertoire that comes available with 3D printing—complex and curvilinear geometries that would be hard to control with masons and blueprints suddenly becomes available in a completely different way.”
