July 1, 2008 Floor plans have been released and the reservations list opened for the "world's first building in motion" - the Dynamic Tower in Dubai. Italian architect Dr. David Fisher made the announcement on June 24 at the official launch of the revolutionary 1,380 foot skyscraper which will have 80 floors and apartments ranging in size from 124 square meters (1,334 SF), to Villas of 1,200 SM (12,916 SF) complete with a parking space inside the apartment.

“The Dynamic Tower is environmentally friendly and the first building designed to be self-powered, with the ability to generate its own electricity, as well as for other nearby buildings, it achieves this feat with wind turbines fitted between each rotating floor, An 80-story building will have up to 79 wind turbines, making it a true green power plant,” Dr. Fisher stated.

The Dynamic Tower will also be built entirely from prefabricated parts, reducing costs and the number of workers on site and resulting in a significantly faster construction time.

“Each floor of the building can be completed in only seven days. From now on, buildings will be made in a factory,” Dr. Fisher said.

Along with the second Tower planned for Moscow, Dr. Fisher also revealed plans for further projects around the globe. “Our intention is to build the third Rotating Skyscraper in New York,” Dr. Fisher stated. “Additional Dynamic Towers will be built around the world, following an expression of interest from developers, governments, and public officials to construct a Dynamic Tower in Canada, Germany, Italy, Korea and Switzerland”.

love the concept.... could easily become the most recognizable building in the world, despite the fact that it will never look the same in several years at a stretch... donno how they will operate the elevators though...

elevators will probably be in the center of the building... but they might need to then invent a whole new type of elevator....
