Suddenly the dynamic architecture is upon us. It’s revolutionary, and it tests the limit of your imagination. Nobody quite seemed to have had any clue of its possibility before it came to the fore.
The claim to the fame of inventing the concept belongs to David Fischer, a Florence-based Israeli architect. Last week the media, assembled in New York to hear him, were treated to utter astonishment as David’s plans came unfolded.
“This building never looks the same, not once in a lifetime,” he said.
That does indeed appear as true if you watch the animated video below or in David’s Dynamic Architecture website.
The first dynamic tower, an 80-storey building, is slated to come up in Dubai. Next may be the turn of Moscow for a near-similar 70-storey edifice.
In the Dubai tower, named the Da Vinci Tower, each of the 80 floors will rotate at its own speed with the help of 79 giant power-generating wind turbines located between every floor.
The video below informs that while each storey of conventionally built building takes 6 weeks to complete, it will take just 6 days in case of Da Vinci Tower. It helps because David Fischer is an expert in prefabrication which is the technology to be used.
Not surprisingly, the tower will be up and running by 2010. The cost is expected to be totaling to $700 million, while the apartments will be priced between $3.7m and $36m.
I’ll surely be green with envy at not ever being able to buy an apartment there, but then not all people are equal.
