Designed by architect David Fisher of Dynamic Architecture, the Dynamic Tower is a proposed skyscraper in Dubai that will feature floors that are independently rotatable.

The 80-story building will be able to rotate 360 degrees in 90 minutes. Residents will also be able control the speed and direction of rotation through voice commands, giving the building an ever changing shape.

The project is currently on hold, although the developer has announced plans for a similar tower to be built in London.
