Rotating, Shape Shifting Skyscraper
An architect has designed an 80 story building that continually changes its shape by using the wind. The “first if its type” building is under construction in Dubai, with a grand opening scheduled in 2010. There are also plans to construct two more moving buildings, with one located in Moscow and another in New York City.
The building design is like nothing we’ve ever seen before. It offers sweeping and constantly changing views, as the building exterior shape actually moves.
The downside… being fabulous and cutting edge will not come cheap. Rumors are circulating that residences will be priced around $3000 per foot.
