Our design is radically different, it revolves around a huge void, providing a dramatic and totally original profile. It consists of 2 different parallel rotating structures.

On one side is the fast rotating structure, which has a full rotation cycle of 30 minutes. It contains of 36 classic viewing capsules, which are projecting from the side of the Wheel, allowing for maximum panorama.

4

On the other side of the wheel is the slow rotating (so vibration free) structure, which has a full rotation cycle of 6 hours and 24 large capsules providing space for hotel rooms, swimming pool, restaurant and really any other imaginable function. Why not a catwalk, a showroom, a discotheque?
