I'm curious to know how they got that Ferrari up there.
do you guys not keep your ferrari's in your living room?
get with it!
How do you get anything in/out when it's moving all the time?
i feel sick just thinking about it
Can you imagine trying to work in that, looks nice but seems very stupid
itd be cool if you had control of your own level then you could choose which views you fancied depending on what room you were in.
but with it being part of a "whole spinning building" would just be shite
I wonder if you lived in that all your life whether you would grow up leaning to one side
I feel like I'm fucking spinning most of the time anyway, so this would just add to the noise in my head.
I can see it's aesthetic merits, cascading movement and the idea of an ever changing vista but surely it would be a bit disorientating to be constantly moving.
I think it said it would take 3 hours to make a complete turn.
This was announced 9 months ago and the BBC is just picking this up? Must be a slow newsday in the UK
What about gaining the control of the rotating engine and playing with it? That would be funny.
good luck with the plumbing. Engineers really have their work cut out for them... But then again if they can fake a moon landing, anything's possible
Can it dodge planes?
It's about time things get more experimental with architecture.
In a world just coming to grips with the "green" reality, is a building that sucks up energy really what we need?
"The slender building would be energy self-sufficient as the turbines would produce enough electricity to power the entire building and even feed extra power back into the grid, said the Italian architect at the unveiling of the project in New York."
I'm pretty sure it would rotate so slowly that no one inside would notice.
so how will this be powered? coal? oil? it better be fekkin solar with the climate in dubai....
