The Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic 3D Printing Podium and our re-use program as acoustic metamaterials

Hiroya Tanaka

We designed and created the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic 3D Printing Podium using recycled materials. Also, we are supporting its re-use program as acoustic metamaterials. In this presentation, we introduce our design and fabrication processes, and new ideas of re-cycle and re-use including metamaterial concepts.

4D Printing for Smart Cities – Duo presentation by Hiroya Tanaka & Hitomi Kuboki, Keio University SFC

Hiroya Tanaka

Hiroya Tanaka and Hitomi Kuboki from Keio University SFC will speak at the 4D Printing & Meta Materials Conference, on April 17, during the 3D Printing Event at Brightlands Chemelot Campus in The Netherlands.

We believe one of biggest application fields of 4D Printing is “Smart City”. We will introduce our novel design of “transformable car” and “environmental facade”, and explain updates of our original hardware (multi-head big 3d printer with super soft materials) and software (g-code editing).
