From Dr NS

Rotating Skyscraper Dynamic Architecture
Has Wind Turbine Power 
A series of rotating skyscrapers based on Dynamic Architecture will be built around the world, starting in Dubai, U.A.E. The Dynamic Architecture concept was introduced by Florentine architect David Fisher. 
 
Rotating skyscrapers get their power from wind turbines that are placed between floors and which rotate freely with the wind.  Additional power is provided from solar cells on the tops of the individual floors. 
Each individual floor is able to rotate slowly, based on commands issued by the owners of condos or apartments on that floor.  I assume that the building owners can also take control, for coordinated movements of the floors.  Note that the rotation of the floors is slow and uses power - the rotation of the floors does not produce power. 
 
The building is constructed around a central core; each floor is composed of individual pie-like sections that are pre-built and hoisted up the central core. The builder claims that rotating skyscrapers can be constructed by just ninety people on the construction site; compare this to the typical skyscraper construction site, which may have up to 2,000 workers at a time. 
Construction dates for the first building have not yet been announced, but the first one will be built in Dubai.  Pre-fabricated units for the tower will be produced in a facility set up in Jebel Ali (a port 35 kilometers southwest of Dubai). The same units will then be shipped to eleven other major cities, including Moscow, Milan, New York and Tokyo, where similar towers will rise.  For an overview of the rotating skyscraper and a quick look at the dynamic architecture that underlies it, take a look at these two videos or this PowerPoint Show.
