1.2 billion people in the world live without adequate housing and ICON, an Austin based company, has a big vision to create sustainable building practices that make beautiful, quality homes accessible to everyone.⠀

ICON has developed a method for 3D-printing a single-story 650-square-foot house out of cement in only 12 to 24 hours, a fraction of the time it takes for new construction, and for less than $4,000.⠀

Human-built equivalent houses take between 13 to 20 days to build, making this tech a potential game changer for the people who lack adequate shelter.
