Will you live in an octagonal house that can rotate 360 degrees? A modern house designed by brilliant Architect Roberto Rossi has been getting a lot of reactions from people online.
On Facebook, GiGadgets posted an informative video about the octagonal house that can rotate 360 degrees.
“The house can rotate in both directions to optimize the solar panels…uses a central pillar to balance its structure,” it was disclosed in the video which already has more than one million views, as of posting.
The brilliant architect behind the structure is Architect Roberto Rossi. His inspiration was Villa Girasole; a rotating house designed in the 1930s. He said the house can generate all energy it consumes.
A lot of social media users love the design of the modern rotating house.
“This rotating house…what a great concept! To be able to follow the sun all day!” Park Meadows Shopping Centre wrote
“Its cool–but I would like it better, if the back and font yard would rotate, as well,” commented Pom Ah.
Others gave a more detailed opinion on the structure.
“Impressive: Most certainly. Practical: no, not really. Sure it can produce all the power it needs, but the cost of maintaining the mechanics that move the house exceeds the cost savings of pure solar in the long run. It’s one of the reasons rotating houses are not more common place, another reason is that a rotating floor, even a slow one, greatly unnerves us humans as it makes us feel unstable,” Sissye A.
