"Maison tournante aérienne" by Albert Robida
Brilliant idea ! I must say i wouldn't mind having a house that rose above the clustered life of the city, but to make it a revolving house is purely genius! I wonder how difficult it would be to replicate this on a full size scale?
This drawing shows a dwelling structure elevated above rooftops and designed to revolve and adjust in various directions. An occupant points to an airship with a fish-shaped bag in the sky lower right. One of the artist's conceptions for his book on life in the upcoming twentieth century.
