Dubai shows us that it's possible to build an entire office building with 3D printing technology

3D printing technology has been used to print everything from figurines to braces to medical tissue. It's also been hotly considered for building temporary shelter houses following a natural disaster. This possibility alone has shown that 3D printing tech has the power to revolutionize the future of architecture, with Dubai serving as the first city build an entire office building using a 3D printer.

They're calling the project the Office of the Future, and it began in 2015. The building is approximately 2,690 square feet and is located near the Emirates Towers complex. Now that the project is completed, it will serve as a fully functional office complete with separate rooms, bathroom, plumbing, and other fixtures.
