3DPRINTCH_34_lowres_Marije-van-WoerdenBesides our great museums, tulips, cheese and bikes, Amsterdam also has an amazing variety of popular must-see houses you should check out while visiting.

One of the houses you must see is the 3D Print Canal House. This is no ordinary canal house: instead of bricks and cement, this house is made of plastic and foam, making it a singular high-tech site in Amsterdam. Although its construction is yet to be concluded, it is well worth paying a visit to this cutting-edge, revolutionary 3D printing architecture spot, which also hosts an exhibition on the printing process. But how does it work? Basically a group of architects, together with construction companies, are fabricating each piece of the house at a time and attaching them together. The first piece for the 3D Print Canal House weighed 180 kilos and was printed by the 6-meter-tall printer, which can also be seen by visitors.

Also be sure to check out our Anne Frank house, the houseboat, the Rembrandt House museum and the Willet-Holthuysen House.
