Dynamic Architecture


An architectural structure with a rotating platform or restaurant is unique, but not an entirely new idea. A skyscraper in motion, however, seems closer to science fiction, than reality. Architect David Fisher is proposing an 80-story high-rise that has the ability to rotate each level independently. This would allow for an entire building’s movements to be choreographed, and would bring a sense of motion to an otherwise static skyline.

It gives me a warm fuzzy feeling to know that my very own, highly-progressive state of Ohio should be breaking ground on their very first rotating skyscraper roughly around 2065 — give or take 30 years. Really, I kid because I care.
