Moving skyscrapers are tall buildings in which individual floors can rotate on its axis. The world's first such building, the Suite Vollard, is located in Curitiba, Brazil.[1] Another similar project is the Dynamic Tower, in Dubai.

The Dynamic Tower[edit]

The tower which will be built in Dubai is designed by an Italian architect, David Fisher. It will have a total number of 80 floors. All the floors are prefabricated and can spin 360 degrees around a central column by means of power generated by the wind turbine located between each floor. The apartments are expected to cost about $3.7 million to $36 million. The construction was expected to be completed by 2014. The projected cost of the project was 700 million dollars.[2]

Moscow[edit]

There are plans to build a 70-story skyscraper in Moscow as well.[3]
