Dubai is getting a rotating skyscraper
Dubai does not cease to surprise us - here is the largest shopping mall of the world, the tallest building and largest artificial island, but, apparently, to them it is not enough...
In 2020, this city, which is known for testing the boundaries of the possible, wants to get a new compliment, because "first rotating skyscraper of the world" will be located there. Dynamic Tower, how this structure will be called, is the work of architect David Fisher, and will rotate around its axis so that its occupants at all times have the possibility enjoy in a view. Plans for this building with 80 floors were presented for the first time in 2008, but so far nothing has been done. Fischer plans allow each floor to rotate independently, which will change the shape of the entire building.
According to the architectural firm that will work on this project: "The rotating skyscraper will receive forms that time and life set for it, and it will never be the same. This will be the first building, which will have four dimensions. It was designed over time and formed by life ". The owners of the skyscraper will be able to wake up and enjoy the view of sunrise, but then, later in the day, the same windows will have views of the sunset. They can also slow down or speed up rotation of their home, so that their views can be changed in minutes, hours or a day.
For rotating floors, energy will be collected from 79 turbines which will be deployed horizontally between floors, reducing the cost of electricity. Also, this tower will have solar ink on its roof, which will produce additional energy. There will also be a stationary elevator built inside a central concrete core of the building, which will give tenants the ability to transport and park their cars near their homes.
Using the previously produced units, floors of the skyscraper will be factory produced prior to connect with the construction. "These units, made from steel, aluminum, carbon fiber and other high-quality and modern materials will be mechanically installed on the site, and will offer luxury details, quick construction, a small number of workers and so will reduce the risk of injuries and their own costs".
Although we're not sure how we feel about living in an apartment that is constantly rotating, we believe that it would be very interesting to see. However, during the last year, Dubai court has stopped work on as many as 166 projects. We hope that this will not be the case with this skyscraper. The price of construction is not known, but as we found out, the price of an apartment in the skyscraper can go from 4 to 40 million.
