Enrico Dini, the Italian expert in the field of robotics has developed a 3D-printing method that he uses to glue sand into a concrete-like material. This technique brings within reach the 3D printing of big-sized complex structures, such as buildings, parts of buildings or other objects with double curved surfaces.

Does this 3D print technique constitute the dreamed potential for architecture and the construction industry?  Can 3D printing make a sustainable contribution to the developments of architecture and the built environment? Will an inhabitant ever actually be able to 3D print his own house? In their lectures Frits Hoff (director FabLab South-Limburg) and Enrico Dini (director D-shape) respond to these questions. Afterwards, there is room for discussion with Frits Hoff and Enrico Dini.
