WinSun plans to create massive 3D printed office buildings that will take up 2,000 square feet. The buildings will be created using 3D printing technology through a layering process to add multiple levels to the buildings.

The office buildings will be located in Dubai and will be fully functional to accommodate employees of the new 'Museum of the Future.' The unique architectural appearance will make the buildings look like horizontal rectangles with smooth rounded corners. The structures will be made of reinforced fiber cement.

Engineers and architects Gensler, Thornton Thomasetti and Syska Hennessy created the design concept, which is consider to be "the world’s first fully functional 3D printed building." The concept is currently in progress but the end goal is nearing the stages of reality.
