Museum of the Future. 3D printed building in Dubai



Located by the World Trade Centre, off the Sheik Zayed Road in Dubai, stands the Museum of the Future designed by South African Architect Shaun Killa. A large part of the building is 3D printed.

It opens in 2020. My next opportunity to photo it will be in 3 weeks time as I capture this image on route to the airport.
