Summary Sacrificial formation is a strategy for creating highly intricate architecture through the integration of robotic direct polymer deposition, multi-agent algorithmic design, and sacrificial formwork. This research leverages the potential of building-scale direct deposition, or 3D printing and explores its implications for architectural form, structure and tectonics. The application of 3D printing in building construction is in its infancy, but with its rapid development, it is critical to interrogate the transformative capacity of this technology and to understand how it might meaningfully affect architectural design.
