Shape-Shifting Skyscraper in Dubai


Artist rendering released by Dynamic Architecture shows a
rotating skyscraper that is to be built in Dubai. Click here for details.



Designed by Italian architect David Fisher, this energy-efficient rotating skyscraper generates electricity via wind turbines built on every floor and is set to
be completed in 2010. The Italian-made pre-fab parts allow for reduced costs of up to 10%, as well as shorter construction times (1 floor per week).

Estimated Cost: $700 Million US
