The concrete used in the book house has no steel bars, and fiber is added as a tensile material. Its performance is similar to or better than ordinary concrete, and it is also shockproof. The book house "shell" has two different textures. One is the normal printing texture, which forms a layer by layer of texture; the other is the texture of the doorway reflecting the uneven changes, which is carefully designed by the design team. These shapes are all designed in the computer and converted into codes, using a robotic arm print it out.
