The Days of Static Buildings Are Over

posted by on June 26 at 15:41 PM

Set for construction in Dubai this fall: the world’s first rotating, self-powering, park-your-car-inside-your-condo skyscraper.

It’s not a building, it’s an action-thriller blockbuster!

that's super interesting... i'd love to see it after it's built.

Dubai is so full of shit. It seems like every month they're throwing out images of another crazy building that doesn't exist. It either won't exist for a long, long time, or it will never exist. You can barely find an actual image of Dubai in Google without it being riddled with concepts.

What is that, anyway? It's like their scene is to hopefully have a scene in the future.

1: what's the buffer that keeps all the other floors/units from shaking like there's an earthquake?

2: what mitigates the mess and smell of auto exhaust from parking your car inside your condo?
