Architect David Fisher, Italian Architect and Town Planner, incorporated dynamics in his buildings first in Italy, followed by Dubai, London, Moscow, Paris,and Hong Kong. According to Fisher, time is the most powerful dimension of life. “Time”, says Fisher “is the dimension of relativity”. His new skyscraper, the tower in motion, is shaped by “life designed by time”.

Dynamic architecture has also brought a revolution in construction techniques. It is in fact the first building produced in a factory, apart from the concrete core. All of its luxury units are manufactured in a factory, including all plumbing, electrical, air conditioning and installed on the concrete core right on location. Prefab construction and implementation offers high quality finishing, high quality control, much less life risks, and huge cost and time savings. Besides, this building, made of single separated floors offer higher seismic resistance than any other normal sky scraper.

The tower will have 48 wind turbines, positioned horizontally between each floors, thus generating green energy and function as a Power Station in the city. Each turbine can produce 0.3 megawatt of electricity, compared to 1-1.5 megawatt generated by a normal vertical turbine (windmill). Considering that Dubai gets 4,000 wind hours annually, the turbines incorporated into the building can generate 1,200,000 kilowatt-hour of energy.

The building will move with the sun to generate solar energy through solar panels positioned on the roof. The total energy produced by this inbuilt ‘powerhouse’ every year will be worth approximately seven million dollars. The particular design of the building and the carbon fiber special shape of the wings take care of the acoustics issues. Producing that much electric energy without any implication on the aesthetic aspect of the building is indeed a revolutionary step in tapping alternative energy sources.

With fourth dimension, time, woven into built fabric , architecture will no longer be confined. Dynamics will generate only one constant: change. Info source: vanibahl.wordpress.com
