Landscape House: A Fundamental Question Leads to Innovation  

Can Building be like Landscape? It can if the building is continuous, without beginning or end, like planet earth. With this answer the Landscape House came into being. Janjaap Ruijssenaars will show the process that followed to answer this fundamental question. A new construction technique, 3D printing, proved to be the most elegant and appropriate for constructing Landscape House. He’ll share insights about 3D printing of buildings and future prospects, for instance as compared to traditional construction techniques and space considerations for mechanical engineering and plumbing during construction.
