In 2014, a 3D-printed Canal House by DUS architects caught the attention of the world. Imagine 10 explores the potentials of Additive Manufacturing for architecture by discussing its implications for design and construction processes, and presents research projects and ideas for future applications.

In 2014, a 3D-printed Canal House by DUS architects caught the attention of the world – including president Obama. The 3D Print Canal House proved the potentials of Additive Manufacturing for architecture and construction. Additive Manufacturing provides the architect with completely new solutions for realizing tool-less production methods, while allowing maximum freedom of design. Additive Manufacturing is ideally suited for Rapid Prototyping. It is possible to manufacture physical presentation and functional prototypes with complex shapes quickly and cost-efficiently without the need for manual processing – directly using three-dimensional CAD construction data. This makes the entire product development process considerably faster.

Imagine 10 explores the potentials of Additive Manufacturing for architecture by charting the current state of technology, discussing its implications for design and construction processes, and presents research projects as well as concept ideas for future Additive Manufacturing applications.
