To be constructed in Dubai, is this skyscraper designed by architect David Fisher which rotates by wind power. The building rotates by individual floor, creating ‘dynamic architecture’.
Wind turbines are positioned horizontally between each floors which, will produce energy to the building itself and will supply energy for several other buildings. The skyscraper consists of 59 floors and will have 48 wind turbines, making the building to be a Power Station producing Green Energy for the city. In addition to the horizontal turbines, the building is to be fitted with photovoltaic panels on the roof in order to generate more electricity.

Below is a presentation of the dynamic architecture showing its sustainability and functionality.
