Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Architectural facades now have the potential to be literally kinetic, through automated sunscreens and a range of animated surfaces. This book explores the aesthetic potential of these new types of moving facades. From critique of theory and practice in architecture, discourse within kinetic arts and the generation of a series of computer animations, a theory of composition and a language of design for kinetic architectural facades is developed.
