Revolving doors are “revolutionary” because they revolve.

Wikipedia: Revolving door
A revolving door typically consists of three or four doors that hang on a central shaft and rotate around a vertical axis within a cylindrical enclosure. Revolving doors are energy efficient as they (acting as an airlock) prevent drafts, thus decreasing the loss of heating or cooling for the building. Revolving doors were designed to relieve stack effect pressure in buildings. High-rise buildings experience immense pressure caused by air rushing through the building, referred to as ‘Stack Effect’ pressure. At the same time, revolving doors allow large numbers of people to pass in and out.
