ICON recently unveiled “House Zero,” its debut home in its Exploration Series pushing the boundaries of what's possible with architecture through automated construction only achievable through 3D printing. In 2022, ICON will break ground on numerous projects including a 100-home community with Lennar codesigned by BIG-Bjarke Ingels Group, disaster resilient housing along the Gulf Coast, barracks for women and men who serve in the U.S. Army and additional homes for those who have experienced chronic homelessness.
ICON continues to set new standards for delivering resilient, dignified housing at high-speed and lower cost. Raising $451 million to date in funding, ICON has delivered communities of 3D-printed homes in the U.S. and internationally and forged partnerships with world-renowned architects, builders and housing organizations missionally aligned to shift the paradigm of homebuilding. In fall 2020, ICON was awarded a research contract through the Air Force, which included funding from NASA to begin research and development of an off-world construction system planned to support future exploration of the Moon and beyond.
