Some of the most relevant ideas about the future of the built environment are being developed in Dubai, and were showcased at the Museum of the Future and Office of the Future. The Museum of the Future is an eye-catching ring-shaped building along Sheikh Zayed Road. Part-incubator, part-showroom, the Museum will be the permanent home of some of the world’s more prominent innovations, which will serve to stimulate imaginative solutions for a challenging future.

The Office of the Future, a smaller prototype building is the world’s first fully inhabited 3-D printed building, and has already been constructed. The structural elements of the demonstration building were printed in 17 days, and installed over a period of two days before the installation of services, cladding and fit-out. Inside, the office has a public cafe, a partnership lounge for exhibitions, events and workshops, a flexible space for team brainstorming and design work, and private meeting rooms for quiet work. These are arranged in such a way as to encourage mixing of teams and idea formulation.
