girasole

HI!
I'm having trouble finding some information on the family house "Girasole" designed by Invernizzi. Can anyone help? Links or general facts on building would be of great help.
The question of most importance is the speed of the rotation.
thanks...

designed to follow the path of the sun. so probably one revolution per day. "just" three stories moved, containing mostly living spaces. technical specs difficult to find. researched that work and calatrava in an investigation of movement and 4-dimensional architecture but quickly got bored and played with lego.

nice gif here.

translates as sunflower.

not much more i can remember. not very well published or celbrated but very interesting for its peculiarities. post any new facts you come across. would b interested to know more. why are you researching it anyway?

Thanks for help!
I agree it's really hard to find some tech specs about it.
I was interested in it as in a part of a research about motion in architecture, architecture combined with motion and sun aspects...
Haven't gone far with it yet...
