A swingy future?

Apparently there's a company specializing in the idea that flexible buildings -- say, where every floor can rotate separately -- are a wave of the future. I didn't know quite what to make of this until I saw their plans for a building in Dubai, in which wind paddles between the floors will generate more than enough electricity for the building to run on. (Apparently there are other benefits to the flexible aspect, but not all of those came clear to me from wandering their site, although it was fun.) Spiff!
