Rotating Skyscraper Being Built in Dubai and Moscow


031_MOSCOW

Architect David Fisher has designed the first ever rotating skyscraper. Each floor can rotate up to once an hour, changing the overall look of the building daily. According to the plans, the rotation of the floors will be powered by wind turbines placed between the floors.

Each floor will be pre-made and lifted to the top and work its way down, a building method that differs from the usual bottom to top construction method. Make sure your checkbooks are handy because the going rate is $3000/sq foot.

Video of the building in action can be seen here.
