3-D printed salt pavilion

A few years ago a friend of mine gave me a small stick (about the size of a jump drive) of plastic. not that interesting until you find out that she made it with a 3-D printer. I was amazing and stowed it away for the day 3-D printing became 'big'. Well that day is here. American studio Emerging Objects 3-D printed a pavilion using sea salt harvested from San Francisco. 

The salt is renewable, inexpensive, and creates strong lightweight components. The pavilion is supposedly the first 'building' made of salt printed components. Aside from it being extremely innovative, the design is beautiful!! 

don't you just want to crawl in there with a book and stay there all day?
