With space for exhibition, seminar and other functional purposes, the office building, next to Emirates Towers, will become the temporary headquarters of Dubai Future Foundation.
The building is part of Dubai's future 3D printing strategy, which aims to make the city into a center of 3D printing technologies before 2030.
