This Would Scare The Little Bit Of Hair Off My Balls

Holy Shit! Architects have unveiled plans for the world's first rotating skyscraper in Dubai. Why? Why? Why? This seems like something that could work up Hawkins wood, (as long as it is a green building), but you'd never catch me in this thing. Not now, not ever - no way.

" The 80-story Dynamic Tower, described as the "world's first building in motion," will also be the first skyscraper constructed from prefabricated units, according to a press statement released by New York-based architect David Fisher's Dynamic Group.

Each floor would be capable of rotating independently, powered by wind turbines fitted between each floor.

"You can adjust the shape the way you like every given moment," Fisher said. "It's not a piece of architecture somebody designed today and that's it. It remains forever. It's designed by life, shaped by time."

CNN has video showing how the building would spin and twist - it is like Jenga meets Rubix. Yikes!
