3D printing meets architecture

kamermaker DUS

landscape houseIn september I read an article about Dutch architecture firm DUS. They have made the first mobile 3D printer with the capacity to make inhabitable pavilions. In this way architects and designers are able to work on site. Sounds great, but it gets better. Last week I read an article about architect Janjaap Ruijssenaars, who is going to print a whole building called landscape house, inspired by nature. Looks like 3D printing is opening new doors for architects. With the 3D printers they can make different architecture considering the form and materials. What could this mean for the future? Maybe we could make more ‘Fitting buildings” to use all the space we thought was useless. What do you think, would love to hear your opinion about this.
