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
