Rotating Tower, Dubai

Continue with the previous post on the "imagination" of eVolo, if we want to see the "imagination" down to earth, definitely we could not miss the Rotating Tower, Dubai. Listed among "THE BEST INVENTIONS OF THE YEAR" and awarded "WORLDWIDE ARCHITECT OF THE YEAR" 2008, this building rocks the architecture of 2008. Whether this so-called dynamic building will really create a new page to the architecture in future, we really need to test our patience to see how smooth and successful it could be "operated" after the completion.



" Visionary architect Dr. David Fisher created the world’s first building in motion...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.It is amazing but you will have the choice of waking up to sunrise in your bedroom and enjoying sunsets over the ocean at dinner....

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