Have you not read any of the preceding items on this thread? The answer is we don't know!! We don't even know if this is a real proposal or whether the whole thing is a big hoax.

Look at the floorplan above, there looks to be 9 different apartments on this floor. Who gets to decide which way the floor rotates? If 5 different apartments want to watch the sunset over the Gulf, who gets to decide which place gets the view? Is there a vote?

Have you read the article that David Fisher, the architect of the Dynamic Tower, isn't even an architect? It looks like this is one big hoax.

Yeah. I've ready about the Bermuda Triangle in a magazine too. So that's true too!

But what about the association of LERA with the project?

You know very well that Leslie E. Robinson is not the kind of guy to play someone else's "hoax" games.

This tower is strange in a way. Every time you get out of the elevator, you have to turn around the core to find your door. The core isnt rotating but the resident parts are.

No it isn't.


Architect behind the Dynamic Tower a fraud?
The Italian architect David Fisher, who was planning to build the world's first rotating skyscraper.

But now, it became known that David Fisher never designed any skyscrapers and that he hasn't practiced architecture in decades.

And next comes the possibility that architect Fisher may be a fraud. In a biography, he said that he had received an honorary doctorate from "The Prodeo Institute at Columbia University in New York". But this institution has never existed, and Columbia said it had never awarded Fisher an honorary degree.

Asked to explain the discrepancy, Fisher said, through his New York publicists, that he had been awarded the degree by the Catholic University of Rome during a ceremony in 1994 held at the Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine, which is near Columbia's campus.

Asked again to clarify the name of the school that conferred the degree, Fisher's publicists said in an e-mail that "Dr. Fisher did receive an honorary doctorate in Economics from Pre Deo University, but it has been removed from his bio because he wants to be entirely accurate and cannot be with this information.

So what's going to become of the Dynamic Tower and its architect?

Just because the architect of the Dynamic Tower (David Fisher) is not an architect by profession and has never designed a skyscraper before does not mean the Dynamic Tower is fake. Frank Lloyd Wright, Norman Foster, Santiago Calatrava and Frank Gehry all had to start somewhere. Imagine what would happen if you could never start doing something just because you have never done it before!

And thanks for the link, AltinD. It does appear as if this is an actual project. We will just have to wait and see if the project does go ahead and where it will be located.

Exactly! And by the same logic, what is preventing me from designing an orbital rocket? Nothing. I'm starting tonight, wee-hee!

The structural engineer has: old WTC in NYC, the SWFC in Shanghai, HSBC and ICC in Hong Kong, Emirates Towers and TRUMP Hotel in Dubai, and many other grand structures under his portofolio.

Whoever David Fisher might be, we know very well who Leslie E. Robertson is.

Check all the projects they were involved with: http://www.lera.com/projects/
