There have been talks of architect David Fisher bringing his Dynamic Tower to Miami's Skyline...
David Fisher's Dynamic Tower is the first building in motion that will change its shape and add a fourth dimension to architecture: Time. The shape will be determined by each floor's direction of rotation, speed, acceleration and the timing; with timing meaning how each floor rotates compared to the other. The rotation speed will be between 60 minutes and 24 hours for one revolution.
Residents, if they own the entire floor, are able to control the speed and direction of the rotation by voice command. One can have breakfast watching the sunrise, lunch viewing the open sea, and dinner overlooking the lights of the city - all from the same place inside their unit. The other floors will be commanded by the architect, by the mayor or whoever will have the password to the computer program that will give the building a different shape at every glance.
According to Dr Fisher, these buildings will be designed by all of us, at any given moment, and will be shaped according to our needs, our present concepts of design and quite importantly, our moods - as an expression of freedom, beginning for the first time in history to control the shape of our homes and cities.
Since the ancient Egyptians built the pyramids 4,000 years ago, one stone on top of another, brick on top of brick, not much has changed in the world of building construction. With the start of the Industrial Revolution around 1770, products began to be manufactured in factories using industrial methods. In 1889, the use of steel was pioneered for the construction for the Eiffel Tower in Paris, and beginning in 1905, reinforced concrete was introduced; but today, buildings are essentially still built on site as they were 4,000 years ago.
Dr. David Fisher's revolutionary Dynamic Tower, the first building in motion, is the first skyscraper to be entirely assembled in a factory from pre-fabricated parts. The factory-made construction process offers many of the advantages of any modern industrial product: conserving energy, reducing construction time and dramatically cutting costs. Each individual unit is completely finished at the Factory and exported worldwide to the assembly site , ready for quick and efficient installation.
