Seeking to please his wife, who had wished for a better view from their home, a Bosnian self-taught innovator built a rotating house, allowing her to watch a rising sun in one moment and passers-by in the next.
I’ve got tired of her complaints and frequent refurbishing of our family house and I said: I’ll build you a rotating house so you can spin it as you wish,
Vojin Kusic, 72, said.
The house can make a full circle for 24 hours when it’s at the slowest speed, while at the fastest spinning it can make a full circle in 22 seconds. The project took six years to finish, except time off for a hospital stay due to a heart condition.
The house is more resistant to earthquake damage than stationary houses.
He said in a heart felt interview,
I asked doctors to try to prolong (my life) for at least a year because I have this project in my head, and… nobody will know how to complete it.
