    I saw in a dream that there is a office building circular in shape just as if seeing Leaning Tower of Pisa. Then i saw an elevator in it, it was moving spiral to the side of the building just as if built as spiral and moving spiral too. But not on the exterior surface of the building but moving inside constructed. Does such elevator in a circular shaped building exists? My guess if in france?

    No because what would lift the elevator.

    The spiral moving elevator is moved on a above hinged railing with moving wheels or maybe magnetism.

    I checked on the internet search and there is no such thing. Neither i saw in any futuristic films.

    Seems unlikely, since it would take much longer to reach a floor, and it would take much more valuable floor space. And elevators are pretty established technology.

    On the outside of the building it would make for good sight-seeing on every side of the building instead of just one side like a vertical elevator. Inside doesn't make much sense.

    The exterior of the building is made up of tinted hardened glass circular in construction and the building surface is inside. The lift is made to run in between the exterior glass surface and interior building walls' exits where the lift halts at floors. I don't think it would take much time as the spiral for each radius turns it would reach another floor's exit. So the building is itself like a 'A leaning tower of pisa'....
