Dubai Rotating Skyscraper to Send Heads Spinning

By Paul Joseph

Of all the outlandish projects to have come to fruition in Dubai in recent years, this is certain to be up there with the biggest and boldest.

The Emirati city is to become home to an incredible rotating skyscraper called the Dynamic Tower Hotel, according to a recent announcement by an organisation called Dynamic Architecture Group.

According to the company, the 80-storey building is due to open in 2020 and will be sectioned of into individual levels, all able to complete a 360 degree rotation.

Floor to ceiling glass windows will ensure guests can take advantage of the view, and even opens up the possibility of watching both the sunset and sunrise in the same room on the same day.

In a bid to be energy efficient, the building will also boast wind turbines between each floor and solar panels on the roof.

“This dynamic experience will offer exclusive services, luxurious accommodation and facilities for the traveller with the most cutting-edge technologies, whether for business or leisure,” Dynamic Architecture Group’s website states.

“Dynamic Hotel guests will have the choice of spacious luxury suites or excellently appointed deluxe rooms and the benefit of exceptional service delivered by one of the world’s leading hospitality companies.”

At the start of the year, a new Dubai development was announced that will include the longest waterfront promenade in the Emirates along with the UAE’s first ever homes on water with pedestrian and boat access.
