House in print

April 1st, 2014

Some 3D printing initiatives are more ambitious than producing jewellery or multi-dimensional images of the family. The 3D Print Canal House Project from DUS Architects in Amsterdam is looking to print housing with new resources derived from bio-based raw materials, or with recycled plastics. DUS calls it a collaboration in research and doing, linking science, design, construction and community, by 3D printing a canal house at an expo-site in the very heart of Amsterdam’.

The 3D Print Canal House is printed with the KamerMaker and each design comprises several room types, with each room  printed separately on site. The separate rooms are assembled into connected floors, and then stacked into an entire house. Rooms can easily be disconnected in case the building needs to be relocated.

“This building project addresses the question of how digital production techniques can offer affordable housing solutions worldwide, for example in slums or in disaster areas, as well as looking at how digital designs can be shared and modified via the Internet and new online networks,” 3d printer
