Futuristic Rotating Tower Skyscraper in Dubai

»»Futuristic Rotating Tower Skyscraper in Dubai
Fancy living in future world today? Head down to Dubai in few years time. Dubai, the new booming emerging country already seeing ambitious real-estate construction activities which built Burj Al Arab, world’s tallest freestanding hotel in the world, and going to see world’s tallest building and the world’s tallest freestanding structure on land in Burj Dubai and Al Burj, are preparing itself to build more innovative skyscrapers which has futuristic and ahead-of-times building designs and architecture.

Dynamic Archictecture Rotating Skyscraper in Dubai

Dubbed ‘Rotating Tower in Motion’ building based on ‘Dynamic Architecture‘ concept by Florentine architect David Fisher is first of its kind and trend-setting. Not only be the pioneer, the Dynamic Architecture building which will constantly in motion changing its shape with each floor capable of spin, move and rotate 360 degrees independent of one another, will also be able to generate electric energy enough for itself as well as for other surrounding buildings from at least 48 wind turbines that fitted between each rotating floors as well as the solar panels positioned on the roof of the building that will produce pollution-free energy from wind and the sunlight.

Dubai Rotating Tower

Any acoustics issues are solved by modern design of the building and the carbon fiber special shape of the wings. And the floor only rotates at the slow speed of about 6 meters a minutes, so that guests inside probably won’t feel it.

Wind Turbine in Rotating Tower

The Rotating Tower is actually a tower with a central concrete core surrounded by 59 independently rotating levels. It will also be the first skyscraper built with industrial systems process, where 90% of the building materials will be produced and constructed as modules in an industrial factory set up in Jebel Ali. These pre-fabricated units will then be shipped to the construction site and then assembled on the central core, the only part that will be built on-site using traditional techniques to house important static amenities like elevators, staircases, plumbing and other utilities. Each floor of the tower will consist of 48 of these factory-made modules that will arrive at the job site completely finished and self-contained with electrical, plumbing as well as air-conditioning systems ready for use. The modules will then be mechanically assembled at the rate of one floor every three days.

Shapes of Rotating Tower

When completed, the rotating tower skyscraper will have 68 floors and will be 313 meters (1,027 feet) high. There will be a 6-star hotel, offices and apartments of various sizes besides five villas on the top floor. Each of the villas will have designated parking on the same floor with vehicles brought up and down in special elevators. The roof of the “Penthouse” villa will also have a swimming pool, a garden and an Arabian majlis. The tower also have a retractable heliport, a platform that will extend from the shell of the building at the 64th floor at the moment of landing, thus maintaining the dynamic aesthetic architecture of the tower.

If you can’t visualize how the tower can have endless shapes by dynamically rotating floors to adapts to its surroundings but also to the tenant’s needs and the tenant’s caprices, the following video may help you.

UFO Dynamic Architecture Building

The Dynamic Architecture concept-based buildings are going to be built all over the world in cities such as New York, Milan, Moscow and Tokyo, after the project expected to complete in 2009 in Dubai, if it ever takes off. Here is a different conceptual design of Dynamic Architecture based on UFO theme.

Times Residences

In fact, this is not going to be the only rotating skyscraper in Dubai. The Times Residences by Glenn Howells Architects is also a rotating tower with 200 condominium apartments that located in City of Arabia, and its rotation mechanism driven by solar energy. However, it’s not rotating individually by each floor, instead whole building rotate altogether to offer all residents equal view. Rotating speed is much slower at 1cm per min, making all 200 units able to view 360 degree of its surrounding once every 7days. This tower expected to finish in 2009.

Rotating Residences

Rotating Residences is a tower project of High Rise Properties with four rotating penthouses and a rotating villa with its own car lift and 3 car pack space on top. There are total of 72 residential units. Five of the tower’s 15 storeys will rotate through 360 degrees at speeds which can be selected by the resident once in either 3, 6, 12 or 24 hours.

Rotating Residences

Rotating City

Not futuristic and advanced enough? How about “Rotating City” urban concept, which will be built anytime soon on an island in Abu Dhabi. The Rotating City, also by High Rise RE, is a city project where every building rotates and faces different environments according to the owner’s wishes. At 10 million square feet, this city definitely has the closer look to Spaceport in Star Wars. The city will consists of 20 rotating building 300 revolving, floating and flying villas on the water, also able to rotate at wish. Inside the city there are also 5-star hotel tower with 300 rooms, 4-star hotel tower with 350 rooms and Attraction Park with an animation box, magic carpet, river adventure, conference room and wedding room.

  • Dubai is a city in the UAE. Its not even the capital.

  • aulia nurdi

    Dubai adalah salah satu negara yang paling banyak menyerap tekhnologi arsitektur futuristik karena kekuatan dana yang tak terbatas.
    Hidup Dubai !

    This project is so fanciful that I don't know where to begin my criticism.
    Prefab – LOL
    Rotating – LOL LOL
    Electricity Generating – LOL LOL LOL
    On floor parking – LOL LOL LOL LOL

    Well, thanks for the belly laughs.

    First of all, this article sucked. If I had a nickle for every typo or grammatical error that was in it, I would be a very rich man.

    Secondly, although the concept seems interesting, it would seem that all of the moving parts would get to be quite a headache. Just imagine doing maintenance on this building. And one has to wonder how you would get into your room. Seeing as it will be moving constantly, you would have to have some sort of rotating elevator, and those are difficult to come by… trust me.

    Do not expect that the building (If ever built) will be as spectacular to watch as the 3-D model in the video. In fact, it would be quite boring. I don't think people are going to want to sit for well over an hour to watch the building twist and turn like a half-retarded ballet dancer.

  • Sahil

    i can see adaptation of emerging technology in todays world are really hard to believe…any ways waiting to see the skyscrapper in 2010…

  • bob

    you suck bob

  • bob

    Your ugly and dont have a life moryarti !

  • Jabib

    I might be doing a project on Dubai so this website is very helpful =P


  • aspiring architect

    I've seen a lot of designs,but a rotating skyscrapper is seriously out of the question,even for the possible near future.I definitely doubt that people would like,let alone feel safe,about having the building they're in tremble and move with them inside of it.

  • when dubai plans something its definitely big and they have the money to do that



  • I love DUBAI !!!

  • Shakin


  • Brian

    This idea is amazing. AMAZING! but elsewhere i learned about its other planned buildings and the beach and island projects already done. check out the city at Google Earth!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • panta

    i believe with sam, the building would not be spectacular because i know how the world works, 1st model is just experience for a better one tomorrow . it would suck .

  • very bad ideas , Santiago Clatrava (Spanish Architect) was the first in creating rotating towers especially in Sweeden,tolsa , , no need to repeat the same ideas or we are copywriters

  • hugeskeptic

    This has a potential to be a scam of the first order. The mechanical infrastructure of rotating water and sewage alone is formidable, plus structural integrity without outer shell support will be impossible. Shifting weight with rotation another time bomb. Save your money.

  • Ok for the people that don't understand how the elevators work
    did it ever occure to you that the core of the buiding wont turn? so all the piping and elevators fire exits and so on will not roatate seems pretty logical to me

  • Zarah

    is this true that at this time there are already reserve guest on that rotating tower skyscraper ?? at this time tallest building/skyscrpaper on the future tallest rotating skyscraper… hahaha… :d


  • Snad

    I sure would like to see them make this sort of thing happen, even if it does cater to the ultra rich, rather than the largest drain of resources, such as the Burj Khalifa skyscraper that we are hearing so much about today.

  • hello

    im doing a report on this. its good info.

  • aamina

    this is only a waste of a hu-ge amount of energy!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    dont b proud of dis

  • venkatesh

    i want more information about rotating towers

  • yogie

    dubai is very wonderful
    Thank you for providing us with this info….

  • Fame Dubai

    I like this unique idea of rotating towers and like the following things:

    It can rotate its each floor independently is the most interesting thing in it.

    The second interesting thing is that 90% of the tower will be built in a factory and shipped to the construction site. This will allow the entire building to be built in only 22 months. The majority of the workers will be in factories, where it will be much safer.

    The third interesting thing in rotating towers is that entire tower will be powered from wind turbines and solar panels. Enough surplus electricity should be produced to power five other similar sized buildings in the area. The turbines will be located between each of the rotating floors. They could generate up to 1,200,000 kilowatt-hours of energy. The solar panels will be located on the roof and the top of each floor.

  • k.sainadh reddy

    i wantto more information about how this tower is constructed.plz send al this information about this building design to my mail

  • maya

    I vana to live in Dubaiiiiiiiiiiiii:)

  • Manpreet Singh


  • Melissa

    WOW, I just showed this to my daughter (age 13) & we agree that we wanna go there!!She cannot believe her eyes! I can't believe these pics- even if they never get the rotating tower(s) built, these arch. pics are simply beyond amazing. Great for a dream. And again, wow!Beauty all around.

  • oye to good yaar…………..

  • bhargavi

    that s a nice info.is that resedential area?

  • anu


  • shahab ahmad


  • bob

    dubai has no money. this will not be built people!

    • sarah

      Dubai has a lot of money and will have more as it goes on so i think it will be built but we will have to wait a while. if they had no money how could they build a new island that they are working on and they have a very successful hotel that rakes in money for the island.

  • frank

    well good thing is we have two of these spiral towers that were just completed this year here in Mississauga Ontario Canada.

  • kendall

    Being imaginative ,is an art very few people posess,putting it into action/or words/or picture is even great,but not having the b. . . . to believe is really sad.could you ever believe,clicking your fingers could make a light come on and off ? WELL that is being imaginative.For the one who thought if this idea,i tell you friend if you ever come up with this call me and we will together,throw all the nonbelivers of the roof,and then you could probabley give me a Head of security job at the same place………….what say.All the best in your planing

  • seema

    Just loving it, loving the concept, when i was child, at dat time i used to thinking dat, there should be some rotational buildings, and now concept is here.
