3D Printed Canal House in Amsterdam

Architects in Amsterdam have started to build world’s first full-sized 3D-printed house.

The building combines history with the future. While the form resembles a traditional canal house, the rest of the building diverges from the old style buildings in every possible way.

The idea behind the project, according to DUS architects, is to develop ways to build in a faster and more efficient way while making use of newly developed materials derived from biobased raw materials.

Digital production techniques like 3D printing, which allows you to directly translate a digital file into a physical product, become increasingly popular on small and larger scale.
