An Italian architect said he is poised to start construction on a new skyscraper in Dubai that will be "the world's first building in motion," an 80-storey tower with revolving floors that give it an ever-shifting shape.

They have a really cool one under construction in Chicago.. But most of the world's tallest and most modern towers are being built in Dubai and the far East.. That particular "moving" skyscraper is absolutely awesome. What a feat of engineering.

The benefit of David Fishers design is that the building would be able to move with the wind and act also a turbine, minimising the winds damaging effects that skyscrapers have to deal with and allowing something so tall and dominating to the environment to be so green and friendly as well. Personally I don't think this building would be for the faint hearted, although the concept is nothing short of pure genius, I hope his plans are put into construction, this WILL mark a new era in sky scraper design and conceptology and will surely inspire other architects too invent greener, less environmental impacting creations.
