An 80-storey tower is about to soar in the skyline with its shitfting floors periodically making a slender shift-shape.
Architect David Fisher holds at news conference in New York:
"It's the first building that rotates, moves, and changes shape,"
The building took sustainability feat, a compelling ingenuity, generating power from wind turbines attached to each storey to power up a 420-meter that spins in full rotation around an axle for every one and three hours.
Dubai's moving skyscraper costs roughly $700M and will be inaugurated in 2010
