Dutch Architects 3-D Printing Canal House
A team in Amsterdam is working to 3-D print the classic Dutch canal house, a project that marries the city’s traditional architecture with state-of-the-art additive manufacturing.
Their effort is more than a study in futuristic design and building—they’ve got their sights on very real global issues that are set to mount in coming years.
"For the first time in history, over half the world’s population is living in cities," says Hans Vermeulen, a cofounder of the 3-D Print Canal House project. “We need a rapid building technique to keep up the pace with the growth of megacities and we thing 3-D printing can actually be the technique to provide good housing for the billions of people on this planet.”

Until last year, more than 100,000 Muslims lived in Bangui, the decaying capital of the Central African Republic. Since the country plunged into anarchy a year ago, brutal sectarian violence has led tens of thousands to flee.
L.A. Times reporter Alexandra Zavis and photojournalist Rick Loomis followed a convoy of Muslim refugees on their harrowing 400-mile journey to safety in Cameroon, one of a handful of neighboring countries that are taking in refugees from the Central African Republic. This is the first of several of their reports on the region.
