Dubai Future Foundation (DFF) was officially recognised as a new Guinness World Records title holder for building the world’s first 3D-printed commercial building. The occasion added to the massive number of over 400 world records the UAE currently set.
DFF’s Office of the Future was awarded the prestigious Guinness World Records™ certificate for building up the “First 3D-Printed Commercial Building” in the world at a ceremony held at Emirates Towers, Dubai, which was attended by Khalfan Belhoul, CEO of Dubai Future Foundation and Talal Omar, Director – MENA at Guinness World Records along with Foundation’s management and employees.
Overall, it took 17 days to print, two days to install and three months to build, landscape and interior design. Today, the office is home to DFF’s Dubai Future Academy (DFAc), a knowledge hub that seeks to prepare generations of leaders with the skills and tools to understand and adopt emerging technology, as well as, address future challenges that are facing our world today.
