Additive manufacturing is becoming more popular as a construction technique for various design fields. 3D Concrete Printing is one type of additive manufacturing in which layers of concrete are stacked on top of each other by pushing concrete through a nozzle onto a printing bed. These layers create three-dimensional solid objects from a digital file. 3D Concrete Printing promises to be extremely beneficial for design flexibility, cost, time, safety, environmental impact, and error reduction. This study explores the potential of 3D Concrete Printing technology in landscape architecture by exploring current research, case studies, expert interviews, and design prototype documentation. The study results indicate that 3D Concrete Printing technology has great potential for future use; however, there are also some challenges. Analysis of the responses aims to provide a basis for understanding the technology's performance, design process, and the potential of the 3DCP in landscape architecture design.
