Arcitecture: Twirling Tower - Dubai

This is unbelievable; no one could watch this clip without being utterly blown away. Those on top of architectural trends probably won’t be surprised to hear that these self-powered “dancing” green buildings will first materialize in Dubai.

The Dynamic Architecture
project was designed by David Fisher, a Florentine architect. The buildings will constantly change shape and will use wind energy, making it possible for a single tower to generate enough energy to power 10 towers.
The individual chambers that comprise each floor of the rotating jigsaw puzzle of a building are sent upwards like an elevator, creating the possibility for anentire floor to be put in place in three days.
