World’s First Rotating Tower in London

Building up to the 2012 Summer Olympics Games, London is all set to get an 80 storey rotating skyscraper with each of the 80 floors rotating independently. Envisioned as a groundbreaking design concept, architect David Fisher and the firm Dynamic Architecture intend to give the structure a ‘fluid look’.

The rotating tower would only add to the city’s growing skyline, with The Shard and The London Eye already present as prominent structures in London’s façade. With floors that rotate individually, the building gets a fluid, changing look through synchronisation of the rotating floors. The construction work on the tower will commence sometime this year, and is being billed as a ‘landmark’ for the city during the summer games.

Dynamic Architecture was initially planning for the first project to be raised in Dubai, but due to financial factors, the team decided to focus instead on the London project. The firm is still upbeat about taking up construction in the Middle East and is waiting for the economy to pick up before increasing its pace for construction in the region.
