DUS Architects Unveils Plans to 3D Print an Entire House in Amsterdam via @Inhabitat

The 3D-printed canal house will also have a green aspect, as DUS plans to print some rooms from bioplastics , with rooms dedicated to specific organic materials like potato starch. Another room will be made from shredded plastic bottles and will be dedicated to 3D printing with recycled materials .
