The Road to Success is not straight: There is a curve called failure, a loop called confusion, speed bumps called friends, caution lights called family, and you will have flats called jobs. But, if you have a spare called determination, an engine called perseverance, insurance called faith, and a driver called God, you will make it to a place called success!

The Worlds first Dynamic Architecture-once again DUBAI

As I have promised guys, I will be posting stuff related to technology. This will be my first entry for my Tech Bytes section.

Dubai is really crazy... Haha! I wish I am there to witness their craziness. Dubai creates a multitude of world records. The tallest building, the largest mall, the largest man-made Marina are just one of them. In this post, A milestone in technology and architecture I should say was revealed as a different kind of infrastructure will be erected on the amazing land of Dubai. The tower will be called: "Dynamic Architecture Tower".



The Dynamic Architecture building, which will be constantly in motion changing its shape, will be able to generate electric energy for itself as well as for other buildings. Forty-eight wind turbines fitted between each rotating floors as well as the solar panels positioned on the roof of the building will produce energy from wind and the sunlight, with no risk of pollution. The total energy produced by this inbuilt ‘powerhouse’ every year will be worth approximately seven million dollars.


As average annual power consumption of a family is estimated to be 24,000 kilowatt-hour, each turbine can supply energy for about 50 families. The Dynamic Architecture tower in Dubai will be having 200 apartments and hence four turbines can take care of their energy needs. The surplus clean energy produced by the remaining 44 turbines can light up the neighborhood of the building.

The surplus clean energy produced by the remaining 44 turbines can light up the neighborhood of the building.


However, taking into consideration that the average wind speed in Dubai is of only 16 km/h the architects may need to double the number of turbines to light up the building to eight. Still there will be 40 free turbines, good enough to supply power for five skyscrapers of the same size.



The horizontal turbines of the Dynamic Architecture building are simply inserted between the floors, practically invisible. They neither need a pole nor a concrete foundation. In addition, they are at zero distance from the consumer, which makes maintenance easier.

The modern design of the building and the carbon fiber special shape of the wings take care of the acoustics issues. Producing that much electric energy without any implication on the aesthetic aspect of the building is a revolutionary step in tapping alternative energy sources. Furthermore, this energy will have a positive impact on the environment and economy.

BYTES AND BITS:

-The Dynamic Architecture Tower will be the first Prefabricated Building. This means that the components of the tower will be built in a factory and then it will be just assembled on the construction site. Imagine yourselves manufacturing a building. (haha!) 90% of the building will be built in a factory and the only thing that will be constructed on the site is the core itself.

-The total cost of the building is 23% cheaper than the normal skyscraper of the same size. Majority of the workers will be based on factories which is safer and only 90 people will work on the said building. It will also be expected to be constructed within 18 months only.

-It is expected to be completed in 2010. The Dynamic Tower will also be called "The Da Vinci Tower".

The Dynamic Tower is expected to be completed in 2010 and NOT 2008. ;)
