Dezeen's Amy Frearson shares DUS Architects's "3D Print Cabin", which was constructed and printed using sustainable bio-plastic.

Inside, the cabin has space to accommodate a bed that can be folded up into a seat during the daytime. While it cannot fit a proper bathroom, a large 3D-printed bath is located in the garden. When it is no longer needed, the cabin can be destroyed and fully recycled. The cabin demonstrates how additive manufacturing could be used to offer solutions for temporary housing and disaster relief.

"Entirely 3D printed with black colored bio-based material, it showcases different types of facade ornament, form-optimization techniques, and smart solutions for insulation and material consumption," said the team. "In the green around the cabin you can enjoy the sculptural printed bathtub, and watch the sunset surrounded by waving poplar trees," added the architects.
