The 3D printed office, which was constructed in a matter of just 17 days, was the first major initiative of the Dubai 3D Printing Strategy, a multi-tiered plan that includes the ambitious goal of having 25% of their buildings 3D printed by 2030. Recently furnished with a modern fittings from the Austrian office furniture company Bene, the 3D printed Office of the Future is now officially prepared to become Dubai’s breeding ground for innovative ideas and meetings. Dubai itself is looking a make a full transformation into becoming the City of the Future, and it seems as if they’re heading in the right direction.Recently, Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of the Board of Trustees at Dubai Future Foundation, made a visit to the 3D printed office in order to speak to the foundation about imminent futuristic transition of the city. The Crown Prince was briefed on the foundation’s strategy and forthcoming projects, including the latest updates regarding the construction of the Museum of the Future, a futuristic space dedicated to showcasing modern content and promoting innovation.
Much like the Office of the Future, the museum is being constructed with advanced 3D printing technology, and is set to open by the end of 2018. During his visit, Sheikh Hamdan went on to praise the initiatives of both the Dubai Future Foundation and the city itself for its recent technological growth. The CEO of the Dubai Future Foundation, Saif AlAleeli, was also in attendance for the Crown Prince’s visit to the 3D printed office.
“Together with the public and private sectors, we are shaping the city of the future, be it in terms of construction, transportation, energy, healthcare, education, or finance, all in an effort to turn Dubai into an open laboratory and a role model for the rest of the world. We want the emirate to be the top global destination to experiment with and implement new technologies that can revolutionise the way we live,” said Sheikh Hamdan.
In addition to being briefed on the current state of the foundation’s projects, which also included the Future Accelerators Programme, an accelerator that was created to help fund individuals and companies that are pushing technology forward, the Crown Prince also called upon the foundation to launch a pilot project that would focus on envisioning the work environment of the future. All of these innovative initiatives follow suit with the words of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE, and Ruler of Dubai, who recently stated that “the future is to be turned into reality today, not years from now.” Discuss this further over in the 3D Printed Office Building of Dubai forum at 3DPB.com.[Source: The Gulf Today]
