 What do you get when you cross a kaleidoscope and a skyscraper? A building with independently rotating floors whose appearance changes continuously. That’s the brainchild of architect David Fisher, whose Dynamic Architecture Group has worked out a plan to develop such a structure (an 80-story version) using pre-fabricated elements shipped to the site for assembly. It would, in essence, be a factory produced skyscraper. And although it’s pricey, just the fact that we now have the technology to do this is pretty amazing.

 

For a great explanation and appreciation of this thought-provoking concept, as well as additional images, read the recent post by Tami Hausman at http://bit.ly/zXDAso
