Rotating Tower Change this

Description Change this

The Dynamic Tower is a rotating skyscraper developed by the Italian architect David Fisher. Each floor of the Dynamic Tower rotates independently to create a building that constantly changes its shape and appearance, resulting in a unique and ever evolving architectural landmark. The Dynamic Tower is environmentally friendly and the first building designed to be completely self-powered, with wind turbines positioned horizontally between each floor, and photovoltaic cells placed on the roof of each rotating floor to produce solar energy.

The tower was scheduled to be built in Dubai. However, due to the financial crisis the project was stopped. The tower's designer has also acknowledged that he has never built a skyscraper before. During his career mainly worked as an academic and has practiced architecture only irregularly. Since the initial official presentation in 2008, no further details on the project's structural design or its feasibility have been published.

The project was DOA long before the 'financial crisis'. Check your records and you will find that this 'architect' has been promising startup 'in the very near future' since 2007.... so far I don't think anybody from the media (or architecture/engineering communities) has been given the opportunity to view anything like a set of plans. You should do some investigative journalism into Mr. Fisher's claims.... or just ignore his outlandish claims.
