Dubai to Build World’s First 3-D Printed Mosque

The first 3D-printed mosque in the world will be constructed by Dubai’s Islamic Affairs and Charitable Activities Department (IACAD) in the United Arab Emirates.

The 2,000-square-metre mosque, which is anticipated to welcome up to 600 worshippers in 2025, will be built in Bur Dubai, one of the oldest neighbourhoods in the Arab Emirates, according to an IACAD press release last week.

The building’s structure will be 3D printed in around four months, and it will take an additional 12 months to fully furnish it with the necessary amenities, according to IACAD. The 3D robotic printer, which can print two square metres every hour, will be operated by three people.

The mosque will be constructed using a mixture of raw building elements and meticulously prepared concrete. Al Shaibani, director of IACAD’s engineering branch, asserts that 3D construction technology would increase sustainability.

3D printing will lessen the waste of building materials. It is environmentally friendly. According to him, the mosque represents the vision of their smart leadership.
