Kinetic architecture

Architecture has now come to a stage where the technical possibilities seem limitless. Buildings become more fluent, dynamic and organic. Examples can be found in most buildings of architect Zaha Hadid.

This proposal by designers Kinetura portraits ‘dynamic lines’ quite literal, and imitates flowers that open in the sunlight.

"The Kinetower’s exterior window elements respond to sunlight or user control much in the same way a flower blooms in the morning, transforming it’s hard facade into a softer and almost unrecognizable version of it’s former self. The metamorphosis is made possible by the use of material that is rigid when taut but flexible enough to bend. This is dynamic design at it’s best."
