Technology has progressed from making 3D-printed jewelry to 3D-printed clothing, and here we have the planned 3D-Printed House by DUS Architects. In the next six months, the Dutch firm will begin work on an iconic Amsterdam home, situated on the Buiksloter Canal and exuding a materiality that’s noticeably unique.

Measuring 3.5 meters high, the KamerMaker (‘Room Maker’) will be set up in a shipping container on site, gradually churning out building components one by one. The team expects it to take a year to complete the facade and the first enclosed space. These will be made from polypropylene, but the intention is to use bioplastics in future. The 3D-Printed House by DUS Architects will act as a research and educational center for this innovative form of production.
