3D-printed Home Designed by Lake|Flato Architects joins ranks of TIME’s Best Inventions featuring extraordinary innovations changing lives

We are honored to share that ICON’s House Zero, designed by Lake|Flato Architects, has been selected as a recipient of TIME’s Best Inventions 2022 in the Design category!

TIME Best Inventions was founded in an effort to bring awareness to the products, software, and services that are solving complex problems in compelling and innovative ways. Each year, thousands of individuals and companies submit their products and services for review across 33 categories ranging from accessibility, connectivity, and apps & software to wellness, beauty, and social good. Once submitted, each of these inventions is reviewed extensively by a panel of judges to determine a product’s impact, not only as it relates to the now, but also in regards to how it will hold up in the future. House Zero is one of the only residential home projects to ever receive this prestigious award.

House Zero’s inclusion on this esteemed list is a cherished stepping stone for ICON as it underscores ICON’s mission of putting robotics, software and advanced materials in service to humanity. Using innovative technologies in the form of the next-generation Vulcan construction system enabled ICON to build a home that was optimized specifically for 3D printing. The future of homebuilding is here.
