1.1 GENERAL
The concept of kinetic architecture and related discoveries goes back to initial human civilization. One of the examples would be Yurts with opening and closing elements. Transformable buildings such as movable bridges design methods were studied first by Leonardo Davinchi. He used the bird’s wings to flight tools and for first movable roof. Through his works he portrayed how nature can be one of the best teacher in human inventions and creations. Due to the increasing demands for new technologies, the application kinetic architecture found its own way into various manufacturing and construction industries. It was able to create a user friendly structures that are more stable than normal structures. The best part is

The examples of kinetic structures which can adjust part of their figure in association with different factors scarcely appear and those that exist are only practically performed. Which means the models are being built in appropriate scale to taste the performance of the construction. Moreover, no appropriate software seems to exist in order to support the study of these constructions. Such software will act as simulator and movement analyzer. Nowadays, when every single everyday life manifestation is strongly related to the use of a computer, the lack of the supporting software appears as the major disadvantage. Doubt regarding utility of kinetic architecture is due to the lack of software. It is easily foreseen that kinetic structures could clearly meet the needs of modern society like practical, aesthetical, interacting with the environment with the advantageous features of kinetic Design Support for Kinetic Structures architecture and taking into account the many possibilities. Also it support and accomplish multiple functions; maybe all these at the same time. Kinetic architecture is the future of architecture and substitute static and not reform…show more content…
The concept was allowed to blossom and expand far beyond its early examples with help of technological advancements since the late 20th century. It’s necessary to look back around one thousand years to truly understand this architectural concept. Implementation of kinetic architecture have several practical reasons. During the Middle Ages, castles needed to freely admit friends in times of peace and needed to be impervious to invaders. One of the earliest examples of kinetic architecture is the drawbridge, which could be lowered to provide a bridge over a moat or raised to act as an immense door .It’s possible to change the shape and appearance of a building to suit the needs of people inside, and adapt to the elements outside using mechanized structures. The central principle remains unchanged even though their applications have reached new level. A prime example of how the principles of kinetic architecture can be used in public buildings is well seen through the University of Southern Denmark in Kolding. It is the first university building in the country to meet the strict energy targets Denmark has set for 2015 and it was designed by Henning Larsen Architects in 2014. In response to the external temperature triangular panels covering the façade to move from closed, to half open, to fully open with the help of sensors that monitor the external heat
