As we consider energy, environment, live-work, infrastructure and green spaces the work of designing buildings not as assets but functional efficient spaces of optimal usage is relevant to architecture. The new innovations and concepts of building design will engulf ideas of mobility, form, structure and accessibility. The new design of the today is the “Massive Rotating Skyscraper Is An Actual Design By Dynamic Architecture (VIDEO)” of David Fisher managing depth, height and mobility as an architectural feat.
The new design reveals a “80-story skyscraper imagined by Dynamic Architecture’s David Fisher that would feature individual rotating floors” in Dubai. The concept are ”floors that move ever so slightly, completing a 360 degree rotation every 90 minutes. The building would be equipped with several giant wind turbines that generate electricity for tenants, and penthouse residents would be able to park their car at their apartments thanks to nifty lifts.”
The integration of art, renewable energy, mobility and spatial definition is a shifting in design and architectural leadership. The charge is to have the supply chain to build what is conceived in the mind of designers who pull out innovation from the normalized world of brick and mortar.
This technology is not erected to date. “The design was originally proposed in 2008, but five years later the feat of architecture has yet to be constructed. This might be because Fisher isn’t actually proficient in skyscraper design,” states Huffington Post. It is not always the one with the eye that has the tools but has the vision to see the future and acquire the toolbox to construct the vision.
