Prefab Rotating Skyscraper

Italian architect David Fisher has designed a prefabricated, net-positive-energy skyscraper with revolving floors. According to Fisher, construction will soon begin on two of these buildings, one in Dubai and the other in Moscow.

The high-rise features revolving floors and would generate enough energy, via wind turbines and solar panels, to power itself and surrounding structures.

If architect David Fisher manages to achieve his dream, the world will soon have its first prefabricated, net-positive-energy skyscraper with floors that rotate independently of each other.
