KINETIC ARCHITECTURE. Designs for Active Envelopes 

– Kinetic Architecture includes a foreword by Haico Schepers, Arup’s façade designer for the landmark Beijing National Aquatics Center, also known as the Watercube, built for the 2008 Olympic Games

– The book features detailed case studies explaining how complex multilayered façade systems create energy efficient, architecturally distinctive, and sought-after places to live and work

– Includes a technical glossary that defines key terminology in this emerging speciality area in architecture

‘Kinetic Architecture is, as intended a valuable resource for architects, engineers and students. This accessible, entertaining and pleasurable book with exceptional photography, is cleverly aimed at both professionals and those with a general interest in architecture and environment’ (Architects’ Journal)

A shift in the architecture industry’s focus in the last 20 years toward ecological concerns, long-term value, and user comfort has coincided with significant new developments in digital controls, actuators, shading typologies, building physics simulation capability, and material performance. This collision has afforded architects an expanded set of opportunities to create architecture that can respond directly to environmental conditions, resulting in innovative façade designs that quickly become landmarks for their cities. Fortmeyer and Linn trace the historical development of active façades in modern architecture, and reveal how contemporary architects and consultants design and test these systems.
