Architect designs five bridges that could house 53,000 families over the River Tigris using 3D printers and debris from buildings ISIS destroyed
 
Architect Vincent Callebaut is the brainchild behind 'The 5 Farming Bridges' plan for rebuilding Mosul, Iraq
The plan features 3D-printed housing units in the form of five articulated spider bridges over the Tigris River
Five 3D printers could construct 30 houses per day, or nearly 55,000 housing units in five years for the city
The bridges would be created by turning the city's building debris and rubble into construction materials
An architect hoping to rebuild war-torn Mosul, Iraq, has proposed a series of stunning 3D-printed bridges that would transform city using its own building debris into construction materials.
 
Architect Vincent Callebaut is the brainchild behind 'The 5 Farming Bridges', which features 3D-printed housing units in the form of articulated spiders over the Tigris River.
 
Five 3D printers could construct 30 houses per day, or nearly 55,000 housing units in five years spread over the five bridges.
 
The concept was a winning project of the Rifat Chadirji Prize Competition, 'Rebuilding Iraq's Liberated Areas: Mosul's Housing'.

Mosul, Iraq's second city, was retaken from IS in July after a massive months-long offensive that left the majority of the city destroyed and hundreds of thousands left without a place to live.  
 
Across the city, 10,000 buildings were damaged over the course of the war, the large majority in western Mosul, the scene of the most intense artillery, airstrikes and fighting during the past five months. 
 
All five of the city's bridges spanning the Tigris River were damaged and deemed unusable during the offensive.
