dubai and tower moving
The tower which will be built in Dubai is designed by an Italian architect, David Fisher. It will have a total number of 80 floors. All the floors are prefabricated and can spin 360 degrees around a central column by means of power generated by the wind turbine located between each floor. The apartments are expected to cost about $3.7 million to $36 million. The construction was expected to be completed by 2010. The projected cost of the project was 700 million dollars.
The Dynamic Tower
David Fisher’s company ‘Dynamic Architecture’ have developed a moving skyscraper! The building will be made up of 80 floors, with an apartment on each floor.
The rotating building is made possible by 79 giant power-generating wind turbines.
As well as the rotation, the wind turbines will also provide enough energy to power the entire building and feed extra energy back into the grid.
There are two buildings planned at the moment. One in Dubai and one in Moscow. The Dubai building is planned to be up and running by 2010.
