First 3-D-printed office building rises in Dubai
from Interior Design
In the shadow of Dubai’s dense forest of megaliths, a low-slung blip of a building represents an extremely promising architectural development. It’s the world’s first fully functioning office that was 3-D printed. Initially, it was envisioned as a solution for relief housing in disaster areas, thanks to the low cost and quick turnaround. But an intriguing opportunity came from the Dubai Future Foundation, which needed a field office while constructing its Museum of the Future. Instead of setting up shop in a prefab trailer, the foundation seized the opportunity to commission a structure that would serve as both interim workplace and proof-of-concept for an emerging technology.
