Dubai Looks to Build The Globe's First Rotating Skyscraper

Oh, Dubai, you never cease to surprise us. You’ve already got the world’s largest shopping mall, the globe’s tallest building and the earth’s largest, man-made island; but that’s not enough for you, is it? In 2020, this city known for testing boundaries, hopes to be receiving its newest accolade for “the world's first rotating skyscraper.”

The brainchild of architect David Fisher of Dynamic Architecture, Dynamic Tower will rise 1,273 feet in the air and will daily rotate 360 degrees to give residents varying views at any time. Plans for the 80-story building were first announced in 2008 but were put on hold, until now. Fisher’s plans will allow each floor to rotate separately which will change the shape of the building as well.
