Dynamic Tower


The Dynamic Tower (also known as Dynamic Architecture Building or the Da Vinci Tower) is a planned 420-metre (1,378 ft), 80-floor moving skyscraper in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, designed by architect David Fisher. The 68-story tower will feature floors that can be individually rotated via voice commands. Similar to the Suite Vollard completed in 2001 in Brazil, each floor
will be able to rotate independently. This will result in a constantly changing shape of the tower. Each floor will rotate at maximum of 6 metres (20 ft) per minute, or one full rotation in 90 minutes. It will be the world’s first prefabricated skyscraper with 40 factory-built modules for each floor. The entire tower will be powered from wind turbines and solar panels. Enough surplus electricity should be produced to power five other similar sized buildings in the vicinity. The turbines will be located between each of the rotating floors.
