The Suite Vollard revolving building. Apparently this set of apartments in Brazil is the world’s only rotating building. Sounds a bit weird to this Ferret. Who incidentally ate a meal in the revolving restaurant at the top of the Post Office tower before it was bombed into submission.
A system of cogwheels and roller chains effects the rotation. Each apartment has its own independent engine system, which can be engaged with a remote control. A complete clockwise or counterclockwise 360º turn takes one hour ..The central area of the apartment does not move in which the kitchen, bathrooms, maid bedroom, laundry area, and barbecue grill are located.
