 The building itself covers 250 square meters and will be used as a museum, showing innovative designs of the future. The project is an achievement of Dubai and China’s ( WinSun Global) cooperation. 

The new 3D printed buildings are expected to decrease the building time by 50-70% and labor costs by 50-80% according to Reuters. The labor cost is a key point because The United Arab Emirates’s workforce is 90% made up of migrants. 

According to Dubai 3D printing strategy, Dubai is planning to have 25% of all the buildings constructed with 3D printer by 2030.
