The Designers of This Cabin are Inviting People to Stay Overnight

Dutch design studio 'Dus Architects' has created a 3D-printed urban cabin that is situated in a public place overlooking the Amstel river in Amsterdam.

The unique project comes as a response to the issues that arise in environmental crises and in situations where temporary housing is needed. The textured structure is made from a sustainable bio-plastic and once it is no longer needed, it can be destroyed and the materials are reusable. The unique project is allowing guests to stay overnight in an attempt to test and reveal its ability to function as a livable structure.

This small 3D-printed urban cabin works as a potential solution in emergency situations where people are in need of a temporary shelter -- making it especially useful for refugee camps and people displaced during natural disasters.
