David Fisher of Dynamic Architecture has come up with a design concept for a high-rise building like you may not have seen before. A high-rise building with 80 floors, each of which can rotate independantly. Between each floor is a wind turbine to harness wind and convert it into energy used by the building and residents can have their car brought up to their apartment with a special lift for motor vehicles. Each apartment unit will be prefabricated offsite (including electrical, plumbing and finishings) and they claim each floor will take about 3 days to put together – much quicker than conventional building construction.
You can find out more about the project on the Dynamic Architecture website.
