3D-printed, biobased cabin available for rent


In Amsterdam, DUS Architects has unveiled a 3D-printed “urban cabin” built out of linseed oil-based plasticThe “cozy” 86-square foot building includes a small park and outdoor bathtub. The building method is cheaper, faster, and less wasteful than conventional construction. The materials can also be shredded and reused, making the concept well-suited for disaster areas or any other circumstance in which small, temporary shelters are needed. The cabin can technically be rented for short stays, but DUS Architects sees the project more as a prototype for “compact and sustainable dwelling solutions.”
