Yeah what's going on with all of this? I gather the Dubai one is dead (ie revealed to be a scam). Is the Moscow one dead too?

After the allegations about faking credentials, the 'architect' of these two supposed buildings seems to have disappeared in a puff of smoke.

This has always been very suspicious, which is why I was so critical of the proposal on the thread for the Dubai one.

If this does indeed turn out to all be a hoax, it has made a lot of people look very silly.

I suppose we'll find out very soon whether it's legit. They say they're starting later this year.

I agree. Just build it like that and leave the 'on' switch alone.

that design looks really awesome, but I doubt the tower will so much 'aligned' in the end. If every floor can be rotated individually, the tower will look rather disheveled

If this tower is going to be build then I think Moscow will be out of concurrence at least in Europe.

I think this company is just doing some door-to-door business in severyl cities to sell their idea. I really much doubt that it will be build, except in cities craving for recognition... Dubai?

I don't think a floor could rotate independently any number of circles regardless of other floors, it will just be able to turn a little in respect with adjacent levels.

The idea for this tower certainly is very interesting, though it seems to be too futuristic for nowadays, but who knows maybe its not..the technique to make each individual floor rotate IMO isn't too complicated , but i gess there will have to be some adjustments made...certainly a very interesting idea for a skyscraper, though i really doubt that construction will start this year...the design looks great though, and i would love to see this building in Moscow's skyline in the future.

Can you imagine the complexity of the motors alone? To rotate a whole floor...

How could you support it? The beams have to connect to the central core but if the floor is going to rotate then so would the core. I'm sorry, I can't figure out how this could ever work no matter what kind of technology we have. The laws of physics won't change.

But the plumbing is in the core of the tower (washrooms, kitchen). I still don't understand how movable floors with movable pipes would connect to the core.

The restaurant is also turning in the CN Tower, so they already have a solution for the pipes, elektricity, etc.

Quote from a website about the Dynamic Tower:

The floors consist of 12 units and on each floor there will be individual plumbing, electric connections and air conditioning among others.

Rotating restaurants just use rotating floors. They don't also move the walls and ceiling.

I also don't see how a floor can have individual plumbing. The water has to be pumped up there and it has to flow away. Therefore the pipes must go to the water tanks which I doubt they would keep in each floor. There's no room under the floor for a water tank.
