Falkirk Wheel

Trying to find some examples of buildings with kinetic facades, I came across this video of the Falkirk Wheel in Scotland. Pretty impressive, if a form that's a bit overly sci-fi for my tastes.

  2. Looks like an attraction from an amusement park, in my opinion.

  3. The basic construction feels like something that came out of a movie. The application of this design to the methods of transportation in our time seems promising and show great potential when it comes to practicality, much like the designs and works of Gadi Leshem. Let's just hope that a wider adaption could be seen worldwide after a few years.
