Dynamic Architecture secures patent for rotating tower in the GCC
Dynamic Architecture has secured a new patent for its rotating skyscraper project within the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), the company founder and building designer revealed.
Italian architect David Fisher, founder of Dynamic Architecture, told designMENA: “We now have the patent for ‘building in motion’ in the GCC [and other parts of the world], so we are ready to start.”
In addition to the GCC, the firm has also secured patents for the project in the United States, the United Kingdom and Europe.
The patented 80-storey building which changes shape is now patented in the region, with Dubai being one of its top target locations for the building.
Fisher said locations in New York, Paris and London are also being considered
Fisher spoke at the Smart Skyscraper Summit last week, and later spoke to designMENA about the tower, which according to the architect, is closer to becoming a reality than it was in 2008, when the project was first launched.
“I think Dubai Expo 2020 is the right time for a building like this,” he said, adding, the Dynamic Tower could become the symbol of the future for Dubai, as well as a symbol for sustainable architecture.
The building will be strongly focused on sustainability and energy saving, meeting Dubai’s 2021 vision to reduce energy consumption, Fisher claimed.
“The most basic sustainable element of the Dynamic Tower is that it is built off-site. This allows you to save on materials, you don’t have waste as you would have on a regular construction site,” Fisher said.
