Abstract

The paper describes research developed with the aim of enquiring into the concepts of adaptability, transformation, and interactivity between the built space, its users and the surrounding environment to find appropriate responses to variations in spatial and functional needs, prompted by different uses and activities. After a look into the roots of kinetic architecture and a brief survey of the state of art, it presents the prototype of a responsive kinetic structure for a multi-purpose pavilion, concluding that by the integration of existing and emergent technologies, we now have the basic means to design and implement such structures.
