After thousands of years in which buildings were static, David Fisher’s Dynamic Skyscraper is an important step ahead towards Future Architecture. The Rotating Tower brings three main futuristic aspects, three revolutions.
The first revolutionary aspect is related to the shape of the building, which changes continuously. It is “Architecture as Part of the Environment”, adjusting to the sun and the wind, to the view and to our momentary requirements.
Each floor, in fact, can rotate separately, changing every second the shape of the building. You can therefore wake up with the sun rising into your bedroom and enjoy the sunset over the ocean at dinner time. The Rotating Skyscraper takes on shapes imposed by time and life, never appearing the same in any two given moments. It is the first building to have four dimensions: Designed by TIME, shaped by LIFE.
The second revolution that the Dynamic Skyscraper brings is the method of construction. To this futuristic design solution, David Fisher has added another unique innovation: Prefabrication. It is in fact the first building produced in a factory, giving construction a new industrial approach. The entire building, aside from the concrete core, is made of prefabricated units which arrive to the construction site completely finished, including flooring, water piping, air conditioning and all finishes. These units, made of steel, aluminium, carbon fibre and other high quality modern materials, are installed “mechanically” on site, offering luxury finishing, very fast construction time, usage of a limited number of workers, thus reducing site risks and enabling cost savings. The building, made of single separate floors, is structurally sound and flexible at the same time, being of very high seismic resistance.
The third revolution is born from combining technology and luxury with environment. The skyscraper's wind turbines, positioned horizontally between each floor, and solar ink on its many roofs will produce energy making the tower the first self-powered building. Thus the Rotating Tower, a unique architectural solution, becomes also a "power station" producing green energy for the city.
