Rotating Skyscraper

Not content with having the tallest building, now Dubai wants a building that spins.

Plans are underway for a 68- story combination hotel, apartment and office tower. Each floor can turn separately, so the building will be changing shape.

It looks great in this video, with the shape undulating. It looks like crap in the picture on Dubaicity.com. Each floor would take 90 minutes to rotate.

This is actually the second spinning building planned for Dubai. The first is a mere 30 story 200 unit condominium tower that rotates once per week.

Construction is scheduled to begin in June, 2008.
