Dubai has bagged yet another Guinness World Record

It's no secret that Dubai loves breaking world records (tallest building in the world, anyone?).

Now, joining Dubai’s winding list of Guinness World Records is the Dubai Future Foundation, which happens to (officially) be the world's first 3D-printed commercial building.

Dubbed “Office of the Future”, the building was inaugurated back in May 2016 not just as an aesthetically pleasing construction innovation, but also as a fully functional office.

The innovation took 17 days to print out of a special mixture of cement and building materials, and was installed on-site in just 48 hours. Casual.

It also only required 1 person to monitor it, 7 people to install it, and 10 electricians and specialists to look after its engineering. Double casual.

With a floorspace of 250 square metres, the building houses spaces for exhibitions, workshops and other events.

The building was part of the Dubai 3D Printing Strategy, which aims for 25 per cent of all buildings in the emirate to be 3D printed by 2030. And if that's not the most Dubai thing you've ever heard, we don't know what is.
