Once again, we assist Dubai to be the most innovative country in the world by building a 3D printed office, the plan has been revealed today.
3D printed office: structure
The building will act as the temporary office for the staff of the Museum of the Future while the permanent museum, which is scheduled to be completed by 2017, is being built.
The building will be approximately 2,000 square feet in size and will be printed layer by layer using a 20-foot tall 3D printer, then assembled on site in Dubai in just a few weeks.
All interior furniture, detailing, and structural components will also be built using 3D printing technology, combining a mixture of special reinforced concrete, glass fiber reinforced gypsum and fiber reinforced plastic.
Mohammad Al Gergawi, Chairman of the UAE National Innovation Committee, said:
“We are keen to use the latest technologies to simplify people’s lives and to serve them better. This project is part of our overall innovation strategy to create new designs and new solutions in education, health care and cities. Our goal is to increase the happiness and well-being of our residents and to pioneer new solutions for the world”.
UAE aims to deploy latest technologies to improve people’s lives. This belongs to HH Sheik Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum’s vision.
This is an other step which put the UAE on the top position as the global centre of technology in architecture construction and design.
3D printed office: benefits
Experts estimate that 3D printing technology can reduce construction time of buildings by 50 to 70%, reduce labor costs by 50 to 80% and save between 30 and 60% of construction waste. These savings mean enhanced productivity, higher economic returns, and boosted sustainability.
The project marks the beginning of an important transformation in the construction and design sector: the shift to 3D printing and digital fabrication.
3D printed office: the Museum of the Future
“See the future, create the future” is the motto of Dubai’s newly unveiled Museum of the Future.
Launched by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, the Museum will become a unique incubator for futuristic innovations and designs.
