Italian Rotating House

Shaun from Deputy Dog has reavealed the lengths some people will go to to get a suntan. In an attempt to have sunlight 24/7, Italian ship engineer, Angelo Invernizzi, from Marcellise, and his architect friend Ettore Fagiouli created a house that rotates to face the sun all year-round.

Sporting a 43 meter tower and weighing a whopping 1,500 tons the wedged shaped building rotates on a circular track at a speed of 4mm per second, which means the building would take just over 9 hours to make a complete rotation.
