It would be a wonder of architecture, but i don't think that this could be habitable.

Wouldn't that drive the inhabitants nuts?
Or make them dizzy?

1) It's probably impossible to do
2) Humans will never be able to live in such environment without psychological/bioself problems

In the end they'll need pirates to accommodate that thing.

lolz. For the people who live there, at every 3 second the main door at 3 degree northwest and by the time you chase the building the backdoor is in front of you.

g0t motion sickness?

It's not impossible to do, obviously. It just rotates very slowly around the central core. At quickest 6 metres a minute.
So nothing near the video.

still, it'd look damn good.

Johnny C:
"The slender building would be energy self-sufficient as the turbines would produce enough electricity to power the entire building and even feed extra power back into the grid, said the Italian architect at the unveiling of the project in New York." and for the rest of you: rotations are planned to complete in 90 minutes, video is sped up for simple understanding of the CONCEPT.

Its a cool idea, but I have doubts as to how durable the building would be.

ok, about the questoins, a complete 360 rotation will take 3 hours, which means tht the building will rotate 8 times a day, about the energy, it will generate powerr itself using wind power, some new technique, the video explains it inbetween.

First of all, not earthquake proof at all.
Second, how do the lifts work?
Third, horrible waste of energy!
And last but not least, Why the ^@%* would anyone want to pay an extra 10 million dollars to live in a building like that?

The thing is like this: the demo building is made to move fast like that so that the investors would know how the motion of it would be. In real life it will move WAY MUCH SLOWER (when it shows from inside the apartment there's a glitch how slow it'll move). If this building will be constructed - which I have no doubt it will be done - it might become the next of world's seven wonders!

LOL ... i really like the idea of having a Ferrari in my livingroom (00:41) .. wonder how the elevator would handle that :D

I just do not see the point of having a building like this.

it rotates 360 in a week, so it's very very slow.

for the guys that wonder how the elevators would work i have a sugestion. think about the center axis. it is stable all the time so it could be used among other things for an elevator shaft. and technically speaking the building is fizicaly buildable. and besides it is in UAE, if it is possible they will do it.

Do some googling and you can find out everything about the design. Very much metainance and wear probably. Some nice appartment to have if you have also an appartment in miami, new york, los angeles, amsterdam and some other cool places.

The whole building is built around a core that is not rotating. Every story rotates on it's own. Some stories are divided into multiple flats, while other's are one flat. The elevator will be in the middle. It's easily doable!

#22 There is no point. The people of Dubai build stuff like this all the time. Which is why we're paying $3 a gallon for gas.

What a monumentally stupid idea.
Imagine being in there!
