Blogged at http://blog.kineticarchitecture.net/2... http://www.suitevollard.com/ Info: Imagine a building in which each floor can rotate 360 degrees, completely independently of all the other floors. Imagine the possibilities, for resort hotels; luxury apartments and condominiums; and Class A office and retail space. Imagine the investment potential for an astute developer. This unique concept in building technology and design is actually available today. Unlike previous rotating structures that required expensive and space-consuming mechanics to rotate only the top floor, this amazing system enables independent rotation, speed and direction for each floor, up to fifty stories, by local or remote control. The entire living/working space, ceilings and outer walls revolve around the center core, which houses all the plumbing and wiring. The wrap-around balconies remain stationary. The mechanics that make all this happen are contained in an extremely small space, require virtually no maintenance, and use no more energy than a hair dryer. Cutting-edge "smart-house" technology is integrated into the design. This is a breakthrough in construction technology that presents remarkable opportunities for developers who want to offer something exceptional in their markets.
