Dynamic Architecture Building
- Dynamic Architecture Building is a 80-storey mixed-use building envisioned for Dubai.
- The project was launched in 2008.
- The estimated handover date was 2010.
- The design contract was awarded to Dynamic Architecture.
The Dynamic Tower is the brainchild of Florentine architect David Fisher. It has been billed as the world's first building in motion but it is still on the drawing board.
The plan is to build an 80-storey skyscraper whose floors each rotate independently through 360° so that the tower never looks the same twice. ‘Fan blades’ underneath each floor create a giant turbine to catch the wind and drive the rotation about the central core. Additional power is provided by solar panels covering the roof and the top of each floor.
Taking the concept of green buildings to the next level, it generates electricity for itself, making it the first skyscraper designed to be entirely powered by wind and sun.
90% of the component parts will be built in a factory and assembled around the building’s core on site. This way of working has many advantages, including much stricter and more reliable quality control, significant gains in efficiency and productivity, and reductions in cost owing to economies of scale.
It is estimated that the 80-storey building can be constructed in 22 months by prefabricating the components on an industrial scale.
In the architect’s words: “Our revolutionary method uses the same industrial engineering and the same cutting edge technologies as the leading aeronautic and car industries. The passage from semi-finished components to complete units guarantees a top quality machine for living.”
