Yes, Here's a Tower Twisting Like a Tall Glass Rubik's Cube

New, 6 comments

Architect David Fischer of Dynamic Architecture—a firm that identifies itself as "an important step ahead towards the architecture of the Future" (with a capital F!)—dreamed up this 80-story skyscraper for Dubai with floors that can rotate 360 degrees every 90 minutes. This means (1) tenants (who control said rotation via voice command) get a range of views, like both sunset and sunrise from bed, (2) the structure itself is undulating and ever-changing, and (3) the whole shebang has the potential to look like a coiling glass-and-steel snake/elongated Rubik's cube/those inflatable air men at car dealerships. The promotional video, complete with a soundtrack that belongs in an epic fantasy film, is below.
