How loud will your upstairs neighbor be then? "It's 3:00 in the morning and they're up there freaking rotating?!!!?"
Except that if everyone is controlling their own apartment (let's say everyone has their own floor, just to be simple about it), then it won't look graceful at all, moving in concert as a wave. It'll be jumbled, random, and confusing to look at.
Yeah this ain't happening. Just one of those stupid Facebook videos of unrealistic shit.
I keep waiting for Dubai to build a skyscraper with a feature so wacky that they and everyone else knows that the building will collapse in just a few years and the seasickness express here looks like a prime candidate.
They're gonna plumb in the water/sewer, HVAC, power and telecom through a rotating central core? That is also the elevator shaft and stairs?
Can’t see anything going wrong with that!
This is just going to look like a fucking Jenga tower if everyone can move their own place? It's not going to be a graceful, stylish masterpiece!
Seems pretty unrealistic. Would it be able to hold up in strong winds or an earthquake? How loud would it be? Would it shake furniture? There are so many unanswered questions.
Assuming that this is not a joke: There will be considerable trade-offs between the marketing materials and actual realities.
I suspect the rotation will be centrally controlled with many maintenance breaks. The cost for ongoing upkeep will be humongous and breakdown often. After a few years the building will be static when costs pile up.
The motors to rotate every floors and number of moving pieces makes this an operations nightmare.
