Rotating building ensures residents are never bored with their view
Cutting edge building design spirals so all residents get a share of the top floor

Fancy a change of view every week? Perhaps the Turn to the Future building could be the home for you.

The unusual residential concept has been created by designer Shin Kuo, and sees occupants taking turns at enjoying top-floor views.


The egalitarian building operates via a system of movable living units, which gradually descend along a spiral track around the perimeter of the building. Over two months the units move a single step each day, and when a unit reaches the ground floor, it is lifted to the top by an internal crane.


The award winning design’s movement of the living space is meant to change the user’s interior relationships with the ground, sky, light, gravity and shadow.

Is a changing view for you?
