China devises, Dubai implements: first 3D-printed office

Dubai is going to construct the first office in the world using 3D technologies.

The Dubai engineers and IT specialists will cooperate with the Chinese company Winsun Global, which has begun assembling houses and other buildings using 3D printers.

Mohammed al-Gergawi, the United Arab Emirates' minister of Cabinet affairs, said the project is part of a broader effort by the seven-state federation to embrace cutting-edge technology and make it a global hub for innovation.

"This building will be a testimony to the efficiency and creativity of 3D printing technology, which we believe will play a major role in reshaping construction and design sectors," he said in a statement.

The roughly 2,000 square-foot office building and furniture used inside will be printed out layer by layer from a mixture of reinforced concrete, gypsum and plastic using a 20-foot tall 3D printer.

The Emirati statement said 3D printing technology has the potential to cut building construction time and labor costs by at least half, and reduce construction waste by 30 to 60 percent.

Officials plan to use the office as the temporary headquarters of a $136 million "Museum of the Future" announced earlier this year that is expected to open in 2017.

In recent years, genetics has become a cutting-edge science, not only in the professional field of biology, but also because of the enormous social reach of its discoveries and approaches. Not in vain, practically every day the press offers us the discovery of a new gene, a new hereditary determinant directly involved in the manifestation of diseases or physical characteristics.
