Three-dimensional (3D) printing technology has been part of architects’ world for years. Recently, however, the Dutch architect Janjaap Ruijssenaars of Universe Architects came forward with a design for an actual, habitable residence using this technology.
Construction on the residence, designed in collaboration with the mathematician Rinus Roelofs, is aimed to commence early next year. The Landscape House, as it is called, is based on the concept of a moebius strip.
A moebius strip is a single length of material that forms a continuous loop with just one side, where the floor becomes the ceiling and the ceiling the floor.
