What do you think about ?

March 17, 2008

This is unbelievable; no one could watch this clip without being utterly blown away. Those on top of architectural trends probably won’t be surprised to hear that these self-powered “dancing” green buildings will first materialize in Dubai.
The Dynamic Architecture project was designed by David Fisher, a Florentine architect. The buildings will be constantly changing shape and will use wind energy, making it possible for a single tower to generate enough energy to power 10 towers. The individual chambers that comprise each floor of the rotating jigsaw puzzle of a building are sent upwards like an elevator, creating the possibility for an entire floor to be put in place in three days. The buildings look like a stack of slim silver discs, some that rotate separate of each other, the others in perfect sync, creating a swirling spiral of glimmering unison. They almost look like metallic strands of DNA.
