Architects have just released blueprints for a skyscraper hotel in Dubai which will feature revolving guestrooms, suites and apartments. The brain behind the innovative project is David Fischer and he says it is a nod to the fact that the lives of people living in the 21st century are continually changing.
The Dynamic Group architect says housing today is static and not an accurate reflection of its inhabitants’ lives. He finished off by saying hotels, houses and apartments should be able to keep pace with the moods of the people living or staying in them and be able to follow the whims of the sun and the wind.
Although the skyscraper development was first proposed almost a decade ago, the Dynamic hotel is moving closer to reality. Developers are now saying the structure could be welcoming its first guests in only three years time.
The Dynamic Group plans show the hotel will be built out of ready-made units. These will be anchored to a pivotal core tower cast from concrete. The units will be able to revolve independently and the plan is to incorporate smart-technology so that occupants can control the rotations with verbal commands.
Each unit will have the capability of turning a full 360°. This will give the means of waking to the rays of the sun in the morning and then watching the sun set over the Persian Gulf in the evening. The power for the rotation mechanisms will be supplied by roof-mounted solar panels and wind turbines fitted between floors.
