Is there something Dubai can’t and won’t do? Lots of architectural wonders there are being built or have been built in Dubai. Many of them looked beautiful in pictures, but this, this is a little different – this one moves:
Dubai plans ‘moving’ skyscraper
The Dynamic Tower design is made up of 80 pre-fabricated apartments which will spin independently of one another.
“It’s the first building that rotates, moves, and changes shape,” said architect David Fisher, who is Italian, at a news conference in New York.
“This building never looks the same, not once in a lifetime,” he added.
The 420-metre (1,378-foot) building’s apartments would spin a full 360 degrees, at voice command, around a central column by means of 79 giant power-generating wind turbines located between each floor. (Source: BBC)
Go to BBC’s page for a video too. Probably a waste of money in the sense where we don’t really need a building that moves.
It redefines a ‘living thing’. My primary school taught me that living thing is anything that could move, hahaa…
