The building, unveiled in October 2019 and registered by by the Guinness World Records, stands at 9.5 metres high and spans across 640 square metres. It could be the starting point of Dubai government’s plans to turn the emirate into a hub for 3D printing technology.

The municipality says the building is 60 percent more sustainable than average buildings, using half of the number of construction workers.The reduction of the labour force needed to construct the building reduced the cost of production from 2.5 million dirhams (nearly $681,000) to 1 million dirhams ($272,000).

Developing 3D printing is part of a drive by the Gulf’s main tourism and business hub to develop technology that cuts costs and saves time.
