Desert 3d printing in Morroco with WASP clay Delta

WASP from Italy is making some big Deltas that 3d print in clay mixtures. Here is a video of them in deserts of Morroco exploring some traditional earth construction buildings and clay mixtures. They make a traditional construction mix from local materials and use it in their machine to make some pottery or construction elements. In the future they will probably enlarge their Delta and 3d print entire homes.

I live in a house that is almost 100 years old and it's made from clay / earth sun dried bricks mixed with hay. Walls are almost one meter thick and it is very well insulated. I would like more application of old techniques in the future. Concrete boxes are just boring and sterile.
