The Rotating Tower

04/23/2007

A skyscraper to make your head spin.

Update! May 6, 2007 David Fisher is trying to convince the powers-that-be in New York City, Miami and Chicago that this is a viable concept. At least two developers in Chicago are interested?

from their marketing campaign:

Dynamic Architecture-dawn of a new era

The Dynamic Architecture buildings keep changing their shape. As each floor rotates separately, the form of the building is changing constantly; you may not see the same building twice.

Dynamic architecture marks a new era in architecture as this new approach, based on motion dynamics, is in fact challenging traditional architecture that until now has been based on gravity.

Dynamic Architecture buildings will become the symbol of a new philosophy that will change the look of our cities and the concept of living. From now on, buildings will have a fourth new dimension – TIME. Buildings will not be confined to rigid shapes; construction will have a new approach and flexibility. Cities will change faster than we ever imagined.

I thought buildings always involved the dimension of time.
But click on this link, it is worth seeing, cheesy animations and all. And you thought the proposed twisting tower by Calatrava was futuristic.
