Dubai creating one-of-a-kind building

[Image: Dubai tower]Dubai may be creating what I would consider to be on of the coolest buildings built (or soon to be). They have a building planned that will rotate over the course of a week. Nothing would be cooler (in terms of horizons) than being able to look out and see a different skyline each night- a little variety.

This tower would not only be cool, but environmentally friendly as it will be powered by solar panels. Well, I guess you could say that it's not saving energy because the inhabitants of the building will use the same either way and that the tower doesn't need to spin, but where's the fun in that. If only I had the money, I would love to live in one of those.

Imagine the planning required to build an ordinary building. Now take that and try to find a way to spin it around safely. Not that building such a thing would be easy in the first place, they are also planning to build 23 just like it- one for each time zone in the world.
