Facts

  • The floors rotate around a central axis, driven by the wind.
  • 48 turbines, located between the floors, generate power as the wind drives the floors around.
  • Electricity is also generated by means of solar cells located on the roof.
  • It is estimated that the building will not only generate all its own energy, but also provide enough surplus energy to power five more skyscrapers of similar size.
  • Voice-activation technology will also enable each floor to rotate autonomously according to tenants' wishes.
  • Each of the 5 villas planned for the top floor will have its own parking space, with vehicles being transported up and down in special elevators.
  • 90% of the building will be constructed off-site as modules and then assembled on-site on the central core.
  • The floors will be made up of 12 modules which will be delivered to the site fully-finished, and with electrical, plumbing and air-conditioning systems fully fitted.
  • Under normal Dubai wind conditions, each turbine will generate 1,200,000 kWh of energy.
