- The next place you want to live.
Architects in Amsterdam have begun construction on what they're calling the first full-sized 3D-printed house. Using what's essentially a large-scale version of a desktop 3D printer, Dus Architects is building what will eventually be a 13-room Dutch canal house made of interlocking plastic parts. The project was announced earlier this year — part proof of concept, part art project. After about three weeks of work, The Guardian reports, one three-meter-high corner segment has been produced. The interior and facade are printed as part of the same brick, and spaces are left for wiring and pipes; for now, the walls are later filled with concrete for insulation and reinforcement.
Maybe this will mean that you can pack your WHOLE house up and move a little easier? It also means my dream of being able to create 100% of my house and contents got a little bit more achievable. You'd definitely need a 3-D printer at home to make extra parts you need to repair the house.
