Reina Fischer – Exercise 101

I have chosen the Rotating Wind Power Tower designed by David Fisher in Dubai.

This building has been designed to be self-sufficient.   It has solar panels fitted on the roof to harness sunlight, and a total of 48 wind turbines to be sandwiched between the rotating floors.

It was the first building of its size to be fabricated in a factory.  Each floor, made up of 12 individual units, complete with plumbing, electric connections, air conditioning, etc., will be fabricated in a factory. These modular units will be fitted on the concrete core or spine of the building at the central tower. It will have a total of 80 floors.

This building truly defines and fits into our ever-evolving society we live in today.

Hello, my name is Reina Fischer, and I’m a returning student. I attended DVC after graduating WAY back in 1992-1994, unfortunately I was a young adult with no drive and no direction of a career/major at the age of 16. So I decided to get a full time job working for a telecommunications company, started a family, got married, and realized I wanted a career that afforded me the opportunity to be a mother first, so I decided to attend beauty school and become a cosmetologist; 10 years later, as my oldest daughter is now also attending DVC, I have decided to embark on a new career/hobby. I haven’t really decided what my major is going to be. I started taking a few drafting classes i.e. AutoCAD 3D and Revit and thought this class would be interesting as well as a course that would fulfill a GE requirement. In my spare time I like to be creative, whether I’m crafting or learning how to use a new software.

  1. This building is amazingly blending with the sky background. It gives the feeling of going up further. Not to mention that the simplicity of the design gives elegance to the building.

  2. I can’t believe that how this huge building can be self-sufficient. I am so interested in eco-friendly energy, and this building is one of my most interesting buildings.

  3. I am in awe of how the building is designed! The way the building spirals upward is so captivating. Also, the fact that the building is self-sufficient with solar panels is genius. What an interesting building!

  4. Buildings like these are why I am fascinated with architecture and engineering. Pushing the bounds of science and innovations, buildings like these are what drive me to this degree.
