Dubai to build world’s first 3D printed office – in pictures

The project is part of its Museum of the Future initiative and is predicted to play a major role in reshaping construction and design sectors.

The office will be able to house nine to 16 people.

The fully usable office will serve as the temporary headquarters for staff from the emirate’s Museum of the Future, that was launched earlier this year by Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid, Vice President and Ruler of Dubai. 3D printing for buildings have a 50 to 80 per cent decrease in labour costs while saving between 30 and 60 per cent of construction waste.

A 20-foot tall 3D printer will be used to print the office that will then assembled on site in a few weeks.

The interior furniture and detailing will be built using 3D printing technology, combining a mixture of special reinforced concrete, glass fibre reinforced gypsum and fibre reinforced plastic (FRP).

There was no date specified for Dubai’s 3D office building but as per plans the Museum of the Future is to open in 2017 in the Emirates Towers area near Sheikh Zayed Road in Dubai.

    3D printing technology promises to revolutionize architecture in the near-future, allowing designers to literally click-and-print complex buildings at a lower cost and faster speed than traditional construction methods allow. Another step forward in the field comes via Dubai, where what’s hailed as the world’s first 3D-printed office was recently completed.
