WORLD'S FIRST ROTATING BUILDING
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST
STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST
What is the world's first rotating building?
If you want engineering and
development that is truly thinking outside the box, you must look towards Dubai.
This city, with new inventive ideas continuously emerging, has now begun
development on a world’s first – the world’s first rotating building. This
building, called The Dynamic Tower will first be built in Dubai with
construction being completed in 2010. Another building of the same kind will
then be built in Moscow and a third to follow in New York. This building is
quickly becoming called, “The building of the future.”
The tower, which will be comprised of 10 luxurious
villa-style condos, 35 residential floors beneath those, the middle 15 floors
will be a luxurious hotel, and the lower 20 floors will be used for retail and
commercial space, for a grand total of 80 floors. You’d expect to have an
elevator in a building such as this but what about an elevator for your car?
Yep, this has got it, and it goes all the way to the top floor! So how does it
work? Each floor rotates at a slightly different speed independently of each
other while they are all connected to a concrete core. One looking at it from
the outside will have a different view of the building every time they look at
it and those looking out from inside the building will complete the entire
panoramic view every one to three hours. Not impressed yet?
Of course such an ingenious building takes into
consideration all contemporary concepts and The Dynamic Tower is no exception.
With all the talk of “going green”, the tower will be powered solely by wind and
solar energy. Each floor has a cell placed on the top that will collect 15
percent of the sun’s rays throughout the entire day, creating enough energy to
power the entire structure. Construction has already begun and it’s expected to
be completed in 2010.
