Between each floor, wind generators and solar panels on the roofs will generate the energy necessary for the function of the tower. Built of carbon fibers, the wind generators will be very quiet. An 80 stories skyscraper like the one in Dubaï, will have 79 wind generators.
This will make it the first building to be self-sufficient energywise.
Architect David Fischer conceived a unique method, called « The Fischer Method » to build his towers. Each floor is assembled in a factory, plumbing and electricity included. It is then affixed to the concrete central core, poured on location. This will permit a 30% reduction in construction time, save 20% of construction costs and will keep 680 workers busy instead of 2000 for a comparable classic building.
Each floor, divided in small pieces and attached to the fixed central concrete core will pivot individually. A voice-command system is installed in each apartment. It will take one to three hours to make a complete revolution around the core.
