A pilot project has started in Ukraine to create a school to quickly help children whose school was destroyed by the war. The public school is due to open in early 2023, in Lviv, Ukraine, as 75,000 children have been displaced in the region and 50,000 will reside permanently there.
When Team4UA, a nonprofit startup offered its service to the city of Lviv, the mayor, Andriy Sadovyi, requested a school. The city will now house the first 3D printed school.
Building the structures walls with a 3D printer is faster and cheaper than executing a new
concrete building from scratch, according to the humanitarian organisation. In addition, they say it is much more sustainable compared to traditional construction techniques.
