Architect David Fisher has officially launched his Dynamic Tower, a unique rotating tower project to be constructed in Dubai and Moscow.

Billed as the first 'building in motion', the towers will feature floors that can rotate independently of the rest of the building. The 420m high tower is the first building in the world that can change its shape constantly.

At a press conference in New York, Fisher said that reservations were now being taken for the Dubai tower, while the Moscow tower is now in the advanced design phase. He also expressed an intention to build a third in New York and that he had received interest from developers in Canada, Switzerland, Germany, Italy and South Korea.

Fisher also declared to the tower to be a sustainable development."The Dynamic Tower is environmentally friendly and the first building designed to be self-powered, with the ability to generate its own electricity, as well as for other nearby buildings, it achieves this feat with wind turbines fitted between each rotating floor, An 80-storey building will have up to 79 wind turbines, making it a true green power plant,"he said.
