Architecture Breakthrough, Rotating Towers
Architects has to have the consideration to all aspects of their own design. Sometimes in the real world, many architects are forgotten and left something important of what a design is. A design is not only about the looks, but it is about every single thing related to a person, community, environment, landscape, economy, culture, and many aspects to think about. Well, i can say that architecture can be a ‘bridge’ which connects almost everything in this world. With every developments that we have today, architects should be more innovative and being out of the box.
Architecture always related to idea and concept of design, and they can come up from anything and become a crazy idea. Today architects are racing in the line of making more and more crazy idea of architecture design. It is of course starts from imagination, and implemented to a creative and innovative design, because everyone have their own imagination.
An idea of having different view at a time, is one of reasons of having this design. Here, I am taking examples of amazing architecture creation. David Fisher with his Dynamic Architecture. A beautiful and stunning building design which literally dynamic, the rotating tower. Simply this building has the standing core part in the middle, and every story is attached to the core. Each floor in this tower is rotating.
This video, shows the magical effect of this shape-shifting tower.
“Uniquely, each floor will be able to rotate independently. This will result in a constantly changing shape of the tower. Each floor will rotate a maximum of 6 meters per minute, or one full rotation in 90 minutes. It will also be the world’s first prefabricated skyscraper with 40 factory-built modules for each floor. 90% of the tower will be built in a factory and shipped to the construction site. This will allow the entire building to be built in only 22 months. The only part of the tower that will be built at the construction site will be the core. Part of this prefabrication will be the decrease in cost and number of workers. The total construction time will be over 30% less than a normal skyscraper of the same size. The core will serve each floor with a special, patented connection for clean water, based on technology used to refuel airplanes in mid-flight.”
The rotation on each floor of the building create different shape in the whole building as it is rotating. Behind all of the aesthetic side of the design, David Fisher also implement the solar panel to generate part of the electricity consumption. A concept of design which is having a remarkable building, with the amazing shape-shifting effect, and also sustainable to the environment.
Architects today already have all the stuff that provide them the convenience to create more and more innovative idea of design. It is the time for us to make another breakthrough to the world.
