imagine 10|RAPIDS 2.0


///imagine 10|RAPIDS 2.0
In 2014, a 3D-printed Canal House by DUS architects was presented in
Amsterdam to an amazed crowd – including U.S. president Barack Obama.
The house proved the potentials of Additive Manufacturing for architecture
and construction. This technique 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. 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
presenting research projects as well as concept ideas for future Additive
Manufacturing applications.
