Dubai reaches dizzying heights: the project of the first rotating skyscraper is discussed
In the coming years, an extraordinary architectural structure that has no analogues in the world may appear in Dubai - the first revolving skyscraper in the history of mankind.
The project of the 80-storey tower with a height of 388 meters was presented by Davis Fisher from the architectural bureau Dynamic Architecture. Independent floors of the building rotate 360 degrees in both directions, which allows for maximum visibility.
The static central core will connect the rotating floors, each of which will be delivered to the construction site and fastened to the tower as a finished product.
The combination of a solar installation on the roof and 79 wind turbines located between the floors will provide the energy needed to rotate the floors.
If the project is approved, apartments priced from $ 4 to $ 40 million may be available already by 2020.
