Hotel Droog, a new place of hospitality in Amsterdam by design studio Droog, challenges the notions of a hotel.  Within its hospitable walls are housed myriad programs that aim to entertain, engage and elaborate on the experience of visitors to Amsterdam where the hotel is located.  The programs vary from restaurants to retail store, exhibitions, beauty parlors, a garden, lecture halls and of course, hotel rooms.  Hotel Droog is a 700 square meter cornucopia for tourists in the heart of a 17th century building and aspiring to become its new cultural home.

KamerMaker: Mobile 3D Printer Inspires Potential for Emergency Relief Architecture

3-D Printing technology is developing at quickening pace as both engineers and architects experiment with its technological and social potential.  Consider Enrico Dini’s D-Shape printer that prints large scale stone structures out of sand and an inorganic binder or Neri Oxman’s research at MIT which involves a 3-D printing arm and nozzles that can print with a variety of different materials, from concrete to recycled plastic.  

Dutch firm DUS Architects, in collaboration with Ultimaker Ltd, Fablab Protospace, and Open Coop, have added another 3-D printing machine to the list known as KamerMaker, the room builder.  KamerMaker is the world’s first mobile 3d printer and has the ability to print “rooms” that are up to 11 feet high and 7 feet wide.  The machine was unveiled at OFF PICNIC, a precursor to Amsterdam’s annual PICNIC technology festival.
