‘Rotating Tower’ – World’s First Building in Motion

Have you seen buildings in motion that actually change their shape? This Dynamic Architecture building called ‘Rotating Tower’ by Italian-Israeli architect Dr. David Fisher will be constantly in motion changing its shape. It will also generate electric energy for itself.

The skyscraper will be the world’s first building in motion. Uniquely, each floor will be able to rotate independently. This will result in a constantly changing shape of the tower. Each floor will rotate a maximum of 6 meters (20 ft) per minute, or one full rotation in 90 minutes. It will adjust itself to the sun, wind, weather and views by rotating each floor separately.

This building will never appear exactly the same twice. You will have the choice of waking up to sunrise in your bedroom and enjoying sunsets over the ocean at dinner.

In addition to being such an incredible engineering miracle it will produce energy for itself and even for other buildings because it will have wind turbines fitted between each rotating floor.

So an 80-story building will have up to 79 wind turbines, making it a true green power plant.

The ‘Rotating Tower’ in Dubai will be 1,380 feet (420 meters) tall, 80 floors, apartments will range in size from 1,330 square feet (124 square meters), to Villas of 12,900 square feet (1,200 square meters) complete with a parking space inside the apartment. It will consist of offices, a luxury hotel, residential apartments, and the top 10 floors will be for luxury villas located in a prime location in Dubai.

The tower will be the first skyscraper to be entirely constructed in a factory from prefabricated parts. So instead of some 2000 workers, only 680 will be sufficient.

Construction is scheduled to be completed by 2010.
