DUS Architects' latest project is a community pavilion that encourages interaction among visitors. Consisting of crystallized and geometric elements, this structure is actually crafted out of 3D-printed facets.
While additive manufacturing techniques have been adapted by industrial and product designers, their use in the automotive industry is also on the rise -- think 3D-printed cars and even airline engines. Going further than portable shelters, DUS Architects takes 3D-printed design to new heights with its '3D Print Canal House' project.
The temporary structure is equipped with communal seating and is located in the heart of Amsterdam's Maritime island. While its crystallized elements stay true to DUS Architects' contemporary aesthetic, its undulating partitions are a subtle nod to the waves formed by the structure's nearby body of water.
